A MYSTERY REVEALED….Who shot this picture? Taken seven months after the fall of the Shah in 1979, it shows the execution of a dozen men in Kurdish Iran and won a Pulitzer Prize the next year, awarded to “an unnamed photographer of United Press International.” It is the only Pulitzer ever given to an anonymous author.

Until now. Today the Wall Street Journal tells the story of Jahangir Razmi and his Nikon, anonymous no more. The story also includes a slide show of the entire sequence of photos that Razmi took that day. Another mystery solved.
