I believe the photo you are referring to was made by Stuart Franklin of
Magnum.  Won 3rd place in POY 1989 Spot News category.  There is a B&W shot
of it (the original was in color) on page 98 of THE BEST OF PHOTOJOURNALISM
XV   (Running Press ISBN 0-89471-874-6) the book published by the University
of Missouri each year after the competition.  You local college may have a
copy in their library, esp if they have a photo sequence.
