There were several photos of the student who stood in front of and stopped a line of Chinese tanks exactly 25 years ago today. The few I have seen are grainy, taken with long telephotos from safe positions in surrounding buildings. The fate of most of the students who demonstrated peacefully in Tian'anmen square are history, but that of the brave student is not, and may never be, although one Chinese diplomat told an American official some years ago that he was alive. Interesting how an unknown person can create an act that has universal appeal. Do you know of a site that has a good copy of this significant image of a brave young person? I have only seen very poor quality copies. Apparently the western journalists/photographers were by chance in China then for the historic meeting of Chinese and Russian leaders, following years of separation of politics between these countries.
