Courage is contagious! When a brave man takes a stand,the spines of others are often stiffened! ~Billy Graham In image: "Tank Man" during Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 in China. He later featured in "Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century" n 1998. #Courage #Tankman #TiananmenSquare

June 4, 1989 - After a month and a half, the Tiananmen Square protests are violently ended in Beijing by the People's Liberation Army, with at least 241 dead. The students and protesters called for government accountability, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and the restoration of workers' control over industry. The Chinese government was widely condemned internationally for the use of force against the protesters. #history #China #Tiananmen

14. The uncropped wide-angle aerial view of Tank Man, Tiananmen Square. From this distance, you see past the four tanks in the original iconic photo, to a chillingly expansive mass of tanks and soldiers. The scale of the picture changes the story somewhat, don’t you think?
The Flying Tortoise: Tankman. The Hero Of China's Tianamen Square, June 5, 1989
IF THIS INSPIRES YOU THEN PLEASE REPIN! To-morrow Weds June 4th is the 25th Anniversary of the terrible events at Tianenmen Square when the Chinese 'Government' chose mass murder over compromise & murdered thousands of it's own peacefully demonstrating citizens in cold blood. This is the full uncropped version of Jeff Widener's famous photo of 'Tank Man', taken from his hotel balcony in Peking (Beijing), June 6th 1989. If anything it demonstrates even more this unbelievable spontaneous act of courage this ordinary working man decided to make that day, in the knowledge that at any moment he might be crushed to death under tank tracks or just simply shot for his refusal to be cowed by state terror. Remember that this was two days AFTER the slaughter at Tianenmen Square so he did this knowing that in all likelihood it was an act of suicidal courage on his part, yet he chose to do it anyway. One man that day had simply had enough. He was later hustled away by other unknowns. To this day his identity remains a mystery. Yet his singularly unique act of defiance DUD help change the world, not in China, but in Eastern Europe where this picture (& film footage of the same incident) emboldened & inspired many there later the same year. He helped bring down the Berlin Wall in November 1989. What a legacy.

Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl who hid from the Nazis with her family in Amsterdam & wrote an account of it in her diary. “The Diary of Anne Frank” is universally read by schoolchildren all over the world as an account of the Holocaust. This portrait was taken just a few months after Frank & her family went into hiding on October 10, 1942. #nostalgia #blackandwhite #AnneFrank
As a child reading the diary of Anne Frank helped me to understand the part of my family history that was too painful for my father to speak of to his young daughter. I am still fascinated by this book and loved sharing it with my own children. IKW
Anne Frank - I love her and the fact that at only 13 years old, 70+ years ago, she still inspires people to be brave.
Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
According to one publisher, The Diary of Anne Frank was scarcely worth reading: "The girl doesn't, it seems to me, have a special perception or feeling which would lift that book above the 'curiosity' level." 15 publishers rejected The Diary of Anne Frank.

Philippe Halsman: Alfred Hitchcock, 1962. "If it's a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on. . . Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms."

DOVIMA: The first “Supermodel” ….. It could be said that Dovima, for whom the term ‘supermodel’ was coined, made a name for herself—literally. Born Dorothy Virginia Margaret Juba, she took the first two letters of her three given names. Not just that, she also perpetuated that the notion of vacuous blondes. In Egypt, while asked her what she thought of Africa, she replied, “Africa? Who said anything about Africa? This is Egypt.” When it was explained that Egypt was in Africa, she replied, “I should have charged double rate!” On the same shoot, she brought along a large trunk that the photographer Richard Avedon assumed was filled with clothes. When he asked Dovima about the trunk, she told him they were her books. Avedon didn’t want to separate the girl from her books, so they lugged the trunk across the desert only to find out they were her comic books. Yet, Avedon admired her as “the last of the great elegant, aristocratic beauties… the most remarkable and unconventional beauty of her time”. For him, she posed in many photographs that came to be the most iconic fashion images of the century. The above picture,”Dovima with the Elephants” was taken by Avedon at the Cirque d’hiver, Paris, in August 1955. The dress was the first evening dress designed for Christian Dior by his new assistant, Yves Saint-Laurent. Dramatic juxtaposition between diaphanous grace and brutish power was achieved by the symmetry between elephants and Dovima, and underlined by the dirty elephants and the clean, elegant model, the rough elephant skin and the smooth fabric of the dress, as well as by gray sprightly but chained elephants and clear-cut and flowing black and white dress. Yet, Avedon was unsatisfied; for the bottom picture, he lamented that, “the sash isn’t right. It should have echoed the outside leg of the elephant to Dovima’s right.” The photo was conspicuously absent Avedon’s seminal photobook, An Autobiography. Two contrasting studies of Dovima were published by Harper’s Bazaar. The photograph of Dovima in black was reprinted many times but the image of Dovima in white was printed only once and the negative no longer exists. “It disappeared mysteriously,” Avedon said. Dovima, too, disappeared. Always insecure about her looks, she left modeling in 1962, saying, ”I didn’t want to wait until the camera turned cruel”. The woman who earned merely $60 per hour even at the height of her career ended her life working as a waitress in Florida. It was a tragic final act more damning of modern extravagances of fashion than of a simpler, quieter era she represented.
Richard Avedon: Dovima with Elephants, Evening dress by Dior, Cirque d’Hiver, Paris, August 1955. Already established as one of the most talented young fashion photographers in the business, in Avedon made fashion and photography history when he staged a photo shoot at a circus. This iconic photograph of that shoot features the most famous model of the time. The image remains one of the most strikingly original and iconic fashion photographs of all time.

Breakfast at Tiffany (1961) Trend Station's list of memorable fashion moments at the movies would be incomplete without including Audrey Hepburn starring in the 1961 adaption Truman Capote's novella. The Givenchy dress, the cigarette lighter, the pearls, the croissant in the window of Tiffany's. Hepburn as Holly Golightly is what fashion dreams are made of.
A cliché I know but Breakfast at tiffanys will always be one of my all time favourite movies - Audrey Hepburn had such elegance, a timeless beauty ♥
