Luggites, Like most major news events, more than one photographer shot the key picture. From Tienamin Square, I remember video footage and at least three still photographers. Stuart Franklin from Magnum got all the publicity, but there was an Associated press photographer who got most of the worldwide publication and another shooter who I can';t remember. In case anyone cares, there were seven still photographer present at the Hindenburg disaster. They all made almost identical pictures but only a couple of guys reaped the awards. Personally, I have seen five of the seven versions. In the LA Olympics, David Burnett got all the praise for the picture of Mary Decker fallling. TIME who he was working for had at least three guys on it, one close to David's position, and the Olympic pool photo editors were amazed and eventually tired of seeing the picture because so many people got it, an got it well.
