Yevgeny Khaldei’s Shell Shocked Reindeer

Iconic Photos is a great photography website which displays and comments on historical/iconic photographs. While browsing the site I found this image below which really caught my eye, by the famous Russian photo journalist Yevgeny Khaldei of a shell shocked reindeer looking on as World War II planes drop bombs. This powerful photo shows a scene of man made destruction that is totally at odds with nature which reduces a once majestic and powerful animal to a daze of confusion.
