Most Influential Images of All Time

I recently purchased a physical copy of Time Magazine‘s 100 Photographs: The Most Influential of All TimeIt’s a fabulous collection- with beautiful and heart-breaking images.  Some made my heart hurt, and others made me happy.  The collection included images such as the Frame 313, Migrant Mother, Flag Raising on Iwo Jima, The Face of Aids, Tank Man, Earthrise, and many more. But I felt several good images were left out.

Here are the images I think were left out:

The Eyes of Hate by Albert Eisenstaedt, of Joseph Goebbles


Little Rock Nine by Will Counts

Black Students Integrate Little Rock's Central High School

National Geographic Afghan Girl by Steve McCurry


King Tutankhamen’s Tomb by Unknown


18 Year Old Girl Liberated from Dachau by Unknown


Young Boy Playing Violin at Teacher’s Funeral by Unknown


Christians Protecting Praying Muslims by Nevine Zaki


JFK Junior Salutes His Father’s Casket by Stan Stearns

John F. Kennedy Jr. Saluting His Father at Funeral

23 Hour Heart Surgery by National Geographic


Prisoner and Heinrich Himmler by  Unknown


Monk Praying for Man Who Died at Train Station by Unknown


These photos really touch my heart, and some even take my breath away and make me teary-eyed.  There is something so powerful in each image, and in photography itself.

What do you think are some of the most influential, or powerful, images?

Ciao for now,
