On June 5, 1989, the "tank man," a lone student carrying a jacket and a shopping bag, stepped in front of a row of battle tanks and raised his arm, instantly becoming a symbol of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. He also became part of one of the most famous photos of the 20th century.

Terril Jones's picture is quite different, taken a few seconds earlier, it shows the chaos of that moment (http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/06/04/behind-the-scenes-a-new-angle-on-history/).
