Photographer Immortalizes Paris Demonstrators with an Image that Closely Resembles a Delacroix Painting

Currently doing the rounds of several European publications is this amazing image of demonstrators in Paris' Place de la Republique taken by French photographer Martin Argyroglo during Sunday's march against terrorism. The photo evokes Eugène Delacroix's most influential and most recognizable painting, "Liberty leading the People", which was created to commemorate the July Revolution of 1830. Just like the painting, the photo is inspired by contemporary events to invoke the romantic image of the spirit of liberty, except that in this case the insurrection guns have given way to pencils and pens.
