One man, a revolutionary, stood on the firing lines, awaiting death. Staring down the line of guns, nobody could be cooler
His name was Fortino Samano. An unheralded foot soldier in the Mexican War. The picture was taken by Agustín Casasola
, a "partial founder of the Mexican Association of Press Photographers".
The photo inspired a poem
by French Poet Virginie Lalucq and Professor Jean-Luc Nancy.
