Caption 0: A lone man with shopping bags walks to the center of Chang’an Avenue and temporarily stops the advance of Chinese tanks after the bloody crackdown against protesters around Tiananmen Square. The fate of the man is still a mystery today. The incident has come to symbolize Tiananmen and is one of the most iconic news images of recent decades. The photo won the Scoop Award in France, the Chia Sardina Award in Italy, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Photograph by Jeff Widener/Associated Press
