Subject: [Leica] Tienamin Square Photos

    Like most major news events, more than one photographer shot the key
    From Tienamin Square, I remember video footage and at least three still
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
    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.
