Photograph of the day

This picture, showing the execution of 11 Iranians following the revolution in 1979, won the Pulitzer Prize. For a long time, no one knew who took it, and the prize was given to "an unnamed photographer of United Press International". Now, however, the Wall Street Journal has tracked Mr. Jahangir Razmi and his Nikon down. Amazing as the story is, it pales in comparison to the slideshow.
