Thanks for the tip from Shaun Mullen at Kiko's House:
[T]he legendary Magnum Photo agency is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Slate has a terrific slide show of the finest of Magnum's finest, including this historic Stuart Franklin photograph of a man confronting Chinese Army tanks in Tiananmen Square in Beijing in 1989.
