Bag’s Take-Away:
In this visual day and age, the picture is mostly notable not as a protest over Tibet but for the fact that it’s sensational and showing up everywhere (in the Western media and social sphere). The way we also often relate to one photo in terms of another, it’s as if the famous 1963 photo of the  self-immolating Vietnamese Buddhist monk  has been updated.

Daesung Lee, an international photojournalist, spent two months photographing the people of Ghoramara Island, located in the Ganges Delta region in India’s West Bengal state. The island has been dramatically affected by global climate change.
