Boy soldier. Hankou, China. March 1938.

"For Zheng [Ziyu], a key image is Robert Capa's 1938 image of a young Chinese soldier. 'He has a child's face, but it's resolute, shot in close-up from a low angle,' says Zheng. 'This image was published on the cover of Life magazine and is, as far as I am aware, the very first time that a Chinese person has been shown by a western photographer on the cover of a high-selling influential magazine with a strongly defined character that goes beyond the usual stereotype." - Colin Pantall
