Photos That Changed the World

These pop up from time to time – lists of photographs that changed the world – and, someday, someone should start analyzing these lists to see if some sort of consensus can be calculated on what are the greatest/most important/most influential/insert-other-platitude-here images ever shot/printed/published/lost/imagined.

Today’s list is of dubious origin (lists two authors from two different publications), but the 13 chosen include some that I would list but there are some major omissions. (For those looking forward to our Advanced Photojournalism course this fall, you should start thinking about these things because you have a paper on what you think is the most important photograph ever made due in December.)

So, what’s on your list?
