Brilliant and Death Defying Just like Mick Jagger ;)

As a Huge Doors Fan I love that one, but the 'I am a Man" protest march Brilliant. Quiet Strength when people actually fought for something worthwhile and not just OIL.

@ Nicolas people fight for oil? :):)

Coco Chanel looks like an old bag:)

@ Socratis not nice!! You know I love you any way.

The most powerful photo for me is the Buddist monk burning in protest. WOW!! 

Can't stop feeling that the photographer should have been helping and not clicking.

I agree Beth but Perhaps  He felt so strong about his cause that He Never Wanted the Help.
Comment by Socratis Avgitidis on October 26, 2011 at 14:03

@ Beth, that is a whole conversation on its own. Have you seen the Bang Bang Club? A large part of the movie is about addressing your point. The role of a photo journalist is to capture the event as it occurs....

PS I take back the Coco comment :)...she looks lovely:)
