The resignation of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev 30 years ago was a significant event that ended an era by drawing a line under the Soviet Union’s existence. The Associated Press’ Moscow director of photography was the only foreign photographer to capture the last Soviet moment. On December 25, 1991. Liu Heung Shing decided that the image of Gorbachev setting the speech he had just broadcast on TV to announce his resignation would best capture the watershed event. Liu chose a slow shutter speed to let the president’s paper move and convey a fleeting historic moment. The photo was on the front pages of many newspapers around the world.
