The Most Intense Photograph You’ll See This Year


The story surrounding this photo is unclear, but most captions seem to indicate it being a Haitian woman defending her son in the Dominican Republican.

UPDATE (5/31/14) – Apparently (thanks to a reader) this is NOT a news photograph, but rather a still from a movie called Cristo Rey.

So, if you – like me – happened to think this was real – good job social media.  You got us.

    Your most intense photograph is an image of a scene of a Dominican movie, called Cristo Rey. Its not real, it´s fiction, she is an actress in a movie with a “Romeo & Julliet” of the slums, theme, All, characters, police, and their fake uniforms, even the slum are fictional. So yeah, yet another great manipulation of an image to create confusion.
