If you’ll make a top of the world’s most important war pictures, this Pulizer wining image will be on the first place for sure. For Americans, if they have to describe “patriotism” in a single picture, this will be more than enough.

De data asta pe terasa parcarii supraterane de la Unirea. Nu stiu cui folosesc imaginile astea dar ma distreaza sa le fac. :)
I’m sure that some of you already know the pictures and the history of this man but I have to publish these images here anyway. It is very strange for me to see the eyes of a man who will know he will die in the next minutes. In this kind of pictures I really identify the true power of photography. This man died more than 60 years ago but this touching face expression it is still printed and somehow alive.

Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej was the first Communist leader of Romania from 1948 until his death in 1965. Officially he died of liver cancer but there are rumors that he was intentionally irradiated during a visit in Moscow. Some believe that his regime was worst than Ceausescu’s period in terms of repression policies.
Alex Galmeanu – Self-portrait
I have fun considering this self-portrait far more than a portrait. It is truly deep and complete. It is like you are’nt see only a face, only the surface but you are entering deep into the soul. When you are going to shoot a portrait, you are really want to discover the personality of the subject, to describe it as better as possible. I wonder if the form of the brain helps or not. :)
