Top 100 Photos of All-Time (According to Time Magazine) Part 1

They say that pictures are worth a thousand words and if anything this list is going to prove that perhaps whomever came up with that adage perhaps low-balled the number a bit. Some photographers focus on the world of sport, or art, and they are both definitely represented in this list, but beyond that, there are also those photographers who are brave (or crazy) enough to go into war with nothing more than their camera and a vest/hat that says “Press” (which is war code for “Don’t kill me! At least on purpose!”). Considering that there have only been around 270 years of peace in the past 3,400 years of human civilization it’s incredibly important that photographers are there though as they can catch the devastation of war that otherwise wouldn’t be noted by the public. So, let’s hop into the first batch of photos from Time Magazine’s list of the Top 100 Photos ever!
