Worth more than words

The New York Times published a moving, beautiful and sad photo slide show of Paul Fusco's photographs of his 1968 journey on the train that was carrying Robert F. Kennedy's coffin from New York to Washington DC. Fusco narrates the slide show discussing how he shot his photos and what it was like to witnessing a nation in mourning. For me, I am in awe of how powerfully poignant such a handful of photographs capture the feeling and diversity of America at that time.
