Jeff Widener took this picture during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests (also known as the Tiananmen square massacre). It shows a man who had just had enough. His fate is unknown. He has as much chance of stopping the tanks as the protests did of changing the humanitarian consideration of the government. But he stood there anyway. The futility of his stance is as tragically beautiful as anything I've ever seen.
