Caras, rostros y semblantes de los héroes anónimos de Kiev

El Huffington Post publica hoy estas 10 impresionantes fotos que, como el mejor periodismo, “inquietan, emocionan y hacen pensar”.

Rostros con hollin, sangre, sudor y lágrimas en las barricasas de Kiev.

Fotos con las cuales se podría dar un curso completo de fotoperiodismo

Los fotoperiodistas de AFP, Getty y Reuters que las captaron y quienes las supieron editar se merecen un homenaje por haber inmortalizado no a los poderosos sino a los humildes, no a los políticos sino a los ciudadanos: a la gente soñadora, idealista y rebelde.

Los héroes anónimos de todas las revoluciones.
