Tank Man

Photo by Jeff Widener during protests in Beijing on June 5, 1989. The Tiananmen Square protests were caused by the death of anti-corruption official, Hu Yaobang and resulted in the deaths of around 3000 protesters. More information on the Tiananmen Square Protests can be found here  – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiananmen_Square_protests_of_1989

The identity of the man in this image is unknown, however their are many rumours and stories about the mans possible fate. He overnight became a worldwide symbol of bravery and hope and this image remains one of the most important pictures ever taken.

This blog is a collection of photos I have found around the internet. From famous battles, great sporting moments or just anything I find to be thought provoking. I do not take credit for any of the photos and any uncredited photos are because I have been unable to find the photographer/artist. Enjoy :) Mirror Eyes - Blogged
