Jeff Widener /b.1956/:Tank Man, 1989

This famous photo, taken on 5 June 1989 by photographer Jeff Widener, shows an unknown man halting the PLA's advancing tanks near Tiananmen Square, China. The photo depicts a lone protester who halted a column of advancing tanks for more than half an hour. Widener took the photo from the sixth floor of the Beijing Hotel, about half a mile away, through a 400mm lens. He was subsequently nominated for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for "Spot News Photography".
