Joseph Goebbels by Alfred Eisenstaedt

I've always thought that this photograph of Joseph Goebbels (shot by Alfred Eisenstaedt at the League of nations in 1933) is one of the most chilling portraits ever created. Physicaly, Goebels looks diminutive, and the amount of space he occupies in the overall composition is small given the fact it is a portrait and he is the subject (and a man of power and notoriety). Yet out of the center of the image his eyes pentrate with a cold steel force that is pure evil.
