Not really. Dith Pran WAS incredibly important, but not particularly as a photographer. His life story is another matter entirely: As one who survived through his force of will and insisted on telling the story of one of the worst Genocides in the 20th century, he has done an important service to mankind.
BTW, I never saw the film "The Killing Fields", but the original 1979 N.Y. Times Magazine article by Sidney Schanberg: "The Death and Life of Dith Pran" is the single most compelling piece of journalism that i have read in my lifetime.
