Face of the Day


An Iraqi man injured in a car bomb explosion lies on a hospital bed February 12, 2007 in Baghdad, Iraq.

With this photo, I'm going to try to introduce a new feature, made possible by the Atlantic's Getty Images subscription. I hope to take the time each day to review as many of the news photographs in the past 24 hours and find a simple face to express something somewhere that is going on in the world. This is a depressing start, but I hope to include the full variety of human experience captured by Getty's superb photographers. The criteria are simply a face and the past day.
