Grieving Man with Flag, Washington DC
Signed, titled, dated and numbered from edition of 35 on recto.
“In 1971 as I waited for a plane at Washington National Airport, I noticed a grieving man sitting nearby holding a folded American flag. He was obviously in pain….I took the photograph and turned to put the camera away and planned to walk over to speak with him…. but when I turned back…. he was gone. Someone next to me said he had just buried his brave son, killed in Vietnam, in Arlington National Cemetery.” – Harry Benson
