Every once in a while, you come across a coincidence that makes you double back and catch your breath. While perusing the internets today, I stumbled across this image that made me rub my eyes in doubt. First look at the similarity in the image pictured above, which is a painting by the artist Nigel Cooke and was included in our FOCUS: Nigel Cooke exhibition that closed last month, and then the AP image. Now take a look at the AP image caption and the name of the photographer. Whoa.
Update: It looks like the link to the AP photo is dead, however down in the comments, John D links to both images shown next to each other.
