Tyler Hicks, the photographer who took the photograph pictured here, has spoken out over the controversy surrounding its caption, clearly explaining the process by which the caption came into being, and how it distorted the actual reality of the picture. It's very important to remember that the story told by the caption is equally as important as the photograph itself. I commend Tyler for sharing the story behind this caption!
