4 stories from 4 different photographers who took photos of the Tank Man of Tiananmen. Fascinating stories.

That's a interesting article. I think that most people remember the video footage of that scene instead of any of these photographs though.

I saw this yesterday on the International Herald Tribune's website. Chen Guang was there as a soldier. He now makes paintings based from the photographs that he took of the incident risking arrest and harassment from the authorities.

I like the story of having 3 rolls of film left, 2 used and one empty and having to sacrifice one used roll and one empty roll to be destroyed by Chinese soldiers to save the 3rd roll. That's the ultimate "the dog ate my homework" excuse!
