The Tank Man of Tiananmen

Jeff Widener/ Associated Press

The New York Times photo blog "Lens" has a fascinating look at how one of the most widely reproduced images from the Tiananmen Square uprisings of 20 years ago was made.

As the Times blog post points out, there were three other versions of the famous photo made on June 5, 1989.

But the photograph most closely associated with this event was shot by then AP photographer Jeff Widener who joined the AP after a stint with the now-defunct Miami News.
