The LIFE photographer who shot these infamous photographs on the night of Robert Kennedy’s assassination, Bill Eppridge, died yesterday.

Talking about that night he said “I know it was the right thing to do [..] I think that that kind of a situation has got to be documented, it has to be told, and it has to be told to people who do not understand the horrors that we can face.”

He was 75.
