Over at Neatorama there’s a great list of 13 Photographs That Changed the World.
It is an interesting collection of photographs from the last two centuries that beautifully illustrates just how powerful an image can be in spreading news, opening eyes, changing opinion and starting movements.
While many will argue over whether other images deserve a place in the list – I think it’s a wonderful start.
I would have included the picture of the Napalm Girl which is one of the most chilling images that has influenced many.
Another that comes to mind is the Tiananmen square image of the student standing in front of the tanks.
What others would you include?
Looking forward to reading your suggestions in comments below.
