A Different Angle

This is one of my favorite moments in modern history… A man with plastic bags in his hands stops a tank on Tian-An-Men square. Don’t forget – there were more than a thousand people actually killed on tian-an-men…

The man was dragged away after he left the spot and noone knows who he is or what happened to him. And for the past years only one photo of him was known and became a canonical image of modern photojournalism.

So this is him. From a different angle. In far left…

(found in a great thread on quora – What are some interesting examples of photographs which show historical figures in unexpected places or company?)
