A protester in Tiananmen Square bares his chest, 1989. The photographer said of this picture, “If you work in news, one of the things you try to do as a still photographer is to try to crystallize the emotion, the tension, of the event you are trying to describe. The history of people tearing their shirts off and baring their chest at the enemy is something the Chinese did in the 1930s during the Japanese invasion.” Photo credit: Stuart Franklin / Magnum Photos
