フセインとブッシュの握手

フセインとブッシュの握手、貴重な2ショットを大公開

2006年、ある夏の夜の繁華街。河北(かほく)省秦皇島(しんのうとう)市で、妖しいポスターを発見した。見覚えのある権力者同士が、友好のしるしに、堅い握手を交わしている。現実にはありえない組み合わせで、通行人の目を引いていた。「いろいろあったけど、もう、やめよう。<1+1BAR>で、朝まで飲み明かそうよ」そんな会話が聞こえてきそうだ。このバーが客寄せに制作した、ブッシュとフセインがモチーフとなった大胆なコラージュ作品である。

Che Guevara


Via O Jumento

Che Guevara

チェ・ゲバラ(Che Guevara)、本名エルネスト・ラファエル・ゲバラ・デ・ラ・セルナ(Ernesto Rafael Guevara de la Serna, 1928年6月14日 - 1967年10月9日)は、アルゼンチン生まれのマルクス主義革命家で、キューバのゲリラ指導者。「チェ」はアルゼンチンのスペイン語で相手に呼びかけるときに使う言葉に由来するあだ名である。そのため、現地では通常「チェ」もしくは「エル・チェ」(elは英語のtheに相当する定冠詞)と呼び、「チェ・ゲバラ」と呼ぶことは少ない。 from Wikipedia


チェ・ゲバラはイメージ的には格好良かったんですけど、共産主義が崩壊した今では、ああいう落書きの対象でしかないのでしょうか? mrgreen

Photographs that Changed the World

Earthrise 1968


The late adventure photographer Galen Rowell called it “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.” Captured on Christmas Eve, 1968, near the end of one of the most tumultuous years the U.S. had ever known, the Earthrise photograph inspired contemplation of our fragile existence and our place in the cosmos. For years, Frank Borman and Bill Anders of the Apollo 8 mission each thought that he was the one who took the picture. An investigation of two rolls of film seemed to prove Borman had taken an earlier, black-and-white frame, and the iconic color photograph, which later graced a U.S. postage stamp and several book covers, was by Anders.

Execution of a Viet Cong Guerrilla 1968


With North Vietnam’s Tet Offensive beginning, Nguyen Ngoc Loan, South Vietnam’s national police chief, was doing all he could to keep Viet Cong guerrillas from Saigon. As Loan executed a prisoner who was said to be a Viet Cong captain, AP photographer Eddie Adams opened the shutter. Adams won a Pulitzer Prize for a picture that, as much as any, turned public opinion against the war. Adams felt that many misinterpreted the scene, and when told in 1998 that the immigrant Loan had died of cancer at his home in Burke, Va., he said, “The guy was a hero. America should be crying. I just hate to see him go this way, without people knowing anything about him.”

Tiananmen Square 1989


A hunger strike by 3,000 students in Beijing had grown to a protest of more than a million as the injustices of a nation cried for reform. For seven weeks the people and the People’s Republic, in the person of soldiers dispatched by a riven Communist Party, warily eyed each other as the world waited. When this young man simply would not move, standing with his meager bags before a line of tanks, a hero was born. A second hero emerged as the tank driver refused to crush the man, and instead drove his killing machine around him. Soon this dream would end, and blood would fill Tiananmen. But this picture had shown a billion Chinese that there is hope.
