33. Manish Swarup

The Indian-born Associated Press photographer, Manish Swarup, shows us things we wish didn't exist to be photographed. During a March 2012 protest to end Chinese occupation in Tibet, Swarup documented a 27-year-old Tibetan activist Jamphel Yeshi after his self-immolation at a demonstration ahead of Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to New Delhi, India. Swarup went on to bear witness to Yeshi's massive funeral, attended by thousands of Tibetan exiles, who chanted, "May Matyr Jamphel Yeshi's name be immortal."
