I saw the preview on television this evening for an upcoming film Flags of Our Fathers. I quote from the article "It examines the power of a single image to affect not only public opinion but also the outcome of a war" Granted, there's more to the movie than the photograph (politics, government, etc.), but that's not my intent on posting. I'm always amazed and impressed at what one image can do for so many people. In this case, it's about the inspiration that this one particular image has obviously had. Just wanted to share this film, its topic and my philosophy that the art of photography can speak volumes without a word said. *edited to say that I'm not particularly a fan of the NYT nor am I promoting the movie, rather the topic and its content (the photograph). So please, no politcal bashing!
