The Story Behind the Photo
This is What's Trending Today.
You may not know the name Burhan Ozbilici. But by now, you have probably seen his photos.
Ozbilici is a photographer for the Associated Press news service. And on Monday, he took pictures of the man who had just shot Russia's ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov.
Karlov was attending a photo exhibition in Ankara. He later died of his wounds.
The shooter has been identified as Mevlut Mert Altintas, a 22-year-old police officer.
In one of Ozbilici's photos, the shooter is pointing a finger in the air. In his other hand, he is holding the gun by his hip. He is shouting, as Karlov's body lies on the floor near him.
Photographers and media experts are calling it "the photo of the year."
People have praised Ozbilici for remaining calm enough to keep taking photos after witnessing an assassination.
Ozbilici told the Associated Press many people dropped to the floor when the man showed his gun. Other people ran.
But he did not.
"I'm a journalist," he said. "I have to do my work. I could run away without making any photos. ... But I wouldn't have a proper answer if people later ask me: 'Why didn't you take pictures?'"
Dennis Paquin is the Associated Press' acting director of photography. He said the image shows how often photographers face real risks. Dangerous situations can come up even in quiet places like an art gallery.
Ozbilici said he only decided to attend the event at the art gallery at the last minute.
"The event seemed routine," he wrote in an Associated Press story.
After the gunshots -- "at least eight of them," Ozbilici recalled -- he found a safe space behind a wall. There, he continued taking photos.
Many people have written about Ozbilici's photos and his work.
A New York Times reporter called him courageous.
One magazine editor called him "extraordinarily brave."
On Tuesday night, Ozbilici wrote on Twitter: "Andrei Karlov, good man, rest in peace. ... Thanks God ... I'm alive."

也许之前你并不知道布尔汉·欧兹比利兹（Burhan Ozbilici） 。而现在，你可能已经目睹他拍下的照片了 。
欧兹比利兹是美联社摄影记者 。周一，他拍下了刺杀驻土耳其的俄罗斯大使安德烈·卡尔洛夫（Andrei Karlov） 。
当时，卡尔洛夫正在安卡拉出席一个摄影展 。随后，卡尔洛夫中枪身亡 。
凶手是年仅22岁的警察梅儿鲁特·莫特·阿特林塔斯（Mevlut Mert Altintas） 。
欧兹比利兹拍下的照片中，有一张凶手竖起手指的照片 。凶手的另一只手里握着一把枪 。他大声叫喊，而卡尔洛夫的尸体就躺在旁边的地板上 。
欧兹比利兹告诉美联社，当凶手开枪时，在场多数民众都吓得趴在地板上 。还有人快速逃离现场 。
他说，“我是一名记者 。”我得做好自己的本职工作 。我可以丢下相机逃命，可如果事后人们问起：“你为什么没有拍下现场的照片？”那么我将无言以对 。
丹尼斯·帕奎因（Dennis Paquin）是美联社的代理摄影导演 。照片告诉我们，记者常常身处险境 。即使像美术馆这样安静的场所也会突发危险情况 。
欧兹比利兹回忆称，至少8声枪响过后，他发现墙后有一片安全区域 。在那里，他继续拍摄着照片 。
周二晚间，欧兹比利兹在推特上发文：“安德烈·卡尔洛夫，善良的人，愿你在天堂安歇 。谢天谢地，我还活着 。”
