Freedom to lead

Shepard Fairey’s poster of Aung San Suu Kyi is beautiful, basically. Too beautiful, in fact. However inspirational she is, we have to honor the horror of her situation as we pay tribute to her. I would have preferred Fairey to use this photo, or any of the many others in which she is not smiling and seems to be bearing a weight that would crush the rest of us. Question: did Fairey use a non-copyrighted photo this time?
