The Burning Monk Photo

by magnus26

Occasionally I like to post a photo of my own here. I’m a big fan of TOP (the online photographer website) and missed this post from yesterday. A brief bit about the circumstances surrounding this photo from 1963, copyright Malcolm Browne, Associated Press. As so often happens with such things, it’s the photographer’s obituary that reminds us of the photo. TOP is well worth checking out, as is their link to the Washington Post obituary. Mr. Browne was the only photographer to show up that day, for what turned out to be a powerful protest that made a difference.
