I’m a child of the 80’s, and, despite knowing by heart the lyrics to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire”, I don’t know the significance of one of the photographs in the video. The youtube version of the video is here.
The black and white photograph that I don’t know is at 1:27-1:28 and 1:32-1:33 in the background. It appears to be a photo of a torture victim with arms bound far behind his back and his head and torso bound to a tree.
Can a helpful soul identify this photo for me, and help me understand its context?
