The Kiss of Life


Rocco Morabito, the guy who took the above photograph and won the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography with it, has just died aged 88. I thought the picture deserved wider distribution: i first saw it today in Morabito's obituary in the Denver Post.

Not a bad picture to hang your reputation on: and what a story.
