This is a picture of a man placing a flower in the barrel of soldier’s gun was taken by Bernie Boston in 1967. This photograph was named “flower power.” This photo was said to be possibly one of the most iconic photos of the 1960s. It is of a young man placing flowers in the barrel of a soldier’s gun at an anti-war demonstration.
I believe the photo represents and is a symbol for people who promote peace. I found the photo to be iconic because the two main objects in the picture, the flower and gun, are two complete opposites. The gun can represent violence, death, pain, and suffering, while a flower can represent peace, love, beauty, etc. I think this shows how ideas and beliefs can be promoted in a nonviolent ways.
