'Burning APC' Beijing, China 1989
A split second after this photo was taken, I was hit in the face by a stray protester rock. The Nikon camera absorbed the blow thus sparing my life. The rock had ripped the entire top of the camera off along with the attached Vivitar 283 flash. the mirror was shattered along with the shutter curtain being warped. The film had to be pried from the darkroom with pliers. Had it been any other camera, I probably would not have survived.
