Photos that Changed the World

Jonathan Klein the founder of Getty Images talks about some photos that changed the world. War, peace, poverty, and prosperity have been captured and affected through powerful images. Seeing the tragedies of a girl burned by napalm and running naked down the street in Vietnam or the ineffable joy of the sailor kissing the girl to celebrate the end of the war. Images have the power to capture complex emotions and convey volumes of meaning. Images can change people in ways that words cannot. Hearing about the starving in Sudan is nothing compared to seeing a child that is reduced to a skeleton.

What images have changed your world?
