Today, Ut retired after 50 years as an @ap.images photographer. @nbcasianamerica spoke with him about his journey "from hell to Hollywood" as he photographed everything from people killed in battle to celebrities getting stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

Ut was 21 when he took the famous photo of Kim Phuc fleeing her burning village. After taking her picture, he rushed the terrified 9-year-old to a hospital. The two remain friends.
