People usually take this picture at face value. They think the Vietnamese man who kills the other man is a monster. In truth the man with the gun is a Vietnamese police captain and the man he kills was a VietCong commander. The man who took this photo made the qoute that people were taking this photo and making it seem that the man with the gun was evil, when he was actually a hero.

Really well done! The picture pulls you in. question: Was the subject taken from Vietnam era war footage? It looks familiar. Anyway, I really like your artwork.

An emotionally charged piece and well executed. I also like it that between the title and the actual piece there seems to be a fair amount of ambiguity as to what "exactly" the meaning is. I don't always like artwork to hold my hand and insist on spelling everything out for me. Good job - I really enjoy your work!

Art at its best.
