That 3rd one is disgusting.
Interesting topic, but I'm afraid that if I post on this one, it'll get moved to TPA.
Nice quote from Charlie Mingus though.
I'm tempted to buy it to see which ones I remember and which ones I could predict make the list. The ones in the group displayed that I predicted were
The Birmingham fire hoses (actually I figured that, Rosa Parks on the bus or being fingerprinted, or the dogs attacking marchers)
Some that I think will show up in the 100 are....
John Kennedy Jr. saluting at his father's funeral
Astronauts planting the flag on the moon
The Space Shuttle exploding after launch
US Relay Team displaying Black Power salute at Mexico City Olympics
Hank Aaron tipping his cap as the scoreboard reads "715"
The Berlin Wall coming down
Nelson Mandela after his election
The second plane hitting the second tower
What do you think makes the list?
that was taken around bakersfield sometime in the 30s or 40s
The very famous photo of the naked girl screaming in the middle of the road after the bomb.
The Joe Rosenthal photo that was the inspiration for the USMC Memorial.
The real blurry Robert Capa photo of GIs hiding behind the steel barricades on Omaha Beach in Normandy on June 6 1944.
The 1989 photo of the person facing the tank in Tiananmen Square.
I've seen this one before... i think very intresting one indeed...
"One Week's Dead May 28 * June 3, 1969"
Okay, I'll jump into the fray here, and let's see what happens.
(I had another good one, with a negro slave after forty lashes, but I can't seem to get my L-View working on this particular machine at the moment - however, here's a link) -
This is something very different from someone laying flowers in front of a tank in Tiananmen - IMO.
The question is pretty obvious here - the "top-down" direction that comes from ideologues and perverts.
Now if this didn't change the world for the good, I don't know what would have..
No, it's not (to me). What are you saying?
"100 photographs that changed the world "
I think the term 'changed' is perhaps a bit misleading. Maybe 'documented' would be better?
another vote for " "
as far as I'm aware, he was commenting on the picture of the burning corpse: the camera angle used is a high one, suggesting that it's been taken by someone standing near by - not necessarily the people responsable for setting the guy alight, but certainly not the guy to act and put out the flames/call help.
Hey nonsqtr, is that the same picture as the one on the cover of Rage Against the Machine's first CD?
I think some of these photographs did change the world. Seeing a photograph of african americans getting sprayed with a firehose, the hate in people's eyes as a girl tries to walk into class, bodies strewn on the sidewalk after jumping from a building that was on fire and had no proper exits, IMO, if I had seen those for the first time during when they happened, they'd make me think alittle differently about how people are treated in this country, and I'm sure they did for others.
Oh yes, definatley. I just thought 'changed' was a bit too strong a word, though i fully agree with your point.
I dunno, I'm a pessimist with little faith in the human race these days. sad, i know
+1. Especially with that picture of the girl walking to class, looking at the people yelling at that one girl behind her shooting daggers at her with her eyes, it makes me a bit ashamed. The fact that we can't just live as one, let others live their lives and go about our own and just coexist peacefully boggles my mind.
Maybe it's the same guy, but not the same picture.
