TIME Magazine is making a statement with their new issue which has President Donald Trump towering over a crying child. The cover is a response to Trump administration’s order that separated families crossing the US-Mexico border.
The photo of the crying girl was shot by John Moore, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for Getty Images, who has been photographing immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border for years.
On the photo of the girl, he says “This one was tough for me. As soon as it was over, they were put into a van. I had to stop and take deep breaths. All I wanted to do was pick her up. But I couldn’t.”
Making a bold statement, TIME’s editors selected John Moore’s photograph to create a photo illustration, including Trump, to make the July 2, 2018, cover of the magazine.
