I don’t even know how I would feel about this if it happened to me.
Noam’s scream self portrait, which was taken in early 2006, became one of the most used images of all time. What started as a low (no) budget photoshoot in his NYC apartment is now an iconic image used around the world in protests, products and advertising, or just for art. By age 28 Noam’s face had become part of popular movements that brought down several world leaders – a rare distinction for someone’s face. Oh yeah, and it all happened without Noam’s knowledge or permission. Here is the case of The Stolen Scream.
