The photo, shot by Nuccio DiNuzzo, a staff photographer during a Chicago Tribune, and published on Monday night, has given left viral, with people praising a wholeness of a message. “I consider that a design speaks for itself,” DiNuzzo tells TIME.

DiNuzzo shot this sketch on a third day of a airport protests. “This was during O’Hare airfield – depot 5, that is a general terminal,” he says. “There were protests on Saturday and Sunday [when] adult to 1,500 people showed up.” But yesterday, when a Tribune sent DiNuzzo on assignment, there were usually about 3 dozens protesters and lawyers present. That was during 3:00 PM. Three hours later, after holding some photographs of a protesters’ signs and a lawyers watchful to support nearing foreigners, DiNuzzo filed his images.

“All of a sudden, we saw dual girls holding signs. They were wearing hijabs,” he says. “I always have an eye out for children in protests like that. That was my initial picture. we asked their father for their names. They had baked some cookies to move to a attorneys. we suspicion that was great.”

Then, a father grabbed one of a girls and put her on his shoulders. “I started sharpened cinema of that,” says DiNuzzo. “And then, we see this other child with a sealed to a left of one of a girls. It kept removing improved and better. The boy’s father picked him adult and put him on his shoulders.”

That’s when DiNuzzo’s instinct kicked in. “It was only a matter of watchful for a impulse where we could see them looking during any other. we got maybe one support of that and that was it. we knew we had a picture.”

DiNuzzo filed a design behind to his editors, and while it was too late for a paper, it done it on a Tribune’s website and on Twitter, where it went viral.

“A lot of things that we post on Twitter, from sporting events and news events, [I] get a few re-tweets and a few likes. It’s singular that it gets in a thousands,” he says. “I had a Bruce Springsteen print final year that he re-tweeted out to his fans and that was a many we ever got – over 2,000.”

But his sketch of a Muslim lady and Jewish child has already amassed some-more than 7,000 re-tweets and 10,000 likes.

For DiNuzzo, who has been a staff photographer with a Tribune for a final 25 years, a picture has a concept message. “It creates people feel good,” he says. “It’s inspiring people emotionally.” And that’s what photography is all about, he adds. “You wish to get right to their heart.”
