Photo That Was Hard to Get Published, but Even Harder to Get

Photo That Was Hard to Get Published, but Even Harder to Get | Social Justice Photography | Scoop.it

An iconic World War II image nearly went unseen because the Pentagon wouldn't allow photos to be published of American war dead. The image also was nearly never taken, because of the danger the photographer put himself in.

My Summary.

In doing this project, I have found out a lot of intersting things about Buenos Aires. I would love to travel there someday! There are many beautiful things to be seen there. Especially the Colon Theatre. I would love to watch something there. I also like La Casa Rosada instead of our old boring La Casa Blanco. I would also love to eat the food there. I would also like to know more about their holidays by going there in the future.
