This 1973 photo by Joseph Crachiola has gone viral on the Internet. Why do you think it has become so popular?
"This particular photograph has reaffirmed for me the power of the still image. Even before I became a professional, I was intrigued by the power of the still image and its ability to make people think. I was captivated by the idea that if I could cause even one person to see things from a different perspective then I might also be able to make the world a better place in some small way. It’s good to know that even in this day and age, when we are bombarded by imagery from every direction, that one photograph can matter to someone."
"I doubt if I’ll ever make another photograph as good as this one, but this one image has given me reason enough to keep trying."—Joseph Crachiola via NPR
