After posting the image of Obama and his family, I got to thinking about journalistic photos that moved me. So I went online to find the photos that I remember making a big impression on me. In some cases I couldn't find the exact photo, so I selected the closest image to it.
Here are some of them:
For some reason, I have always remembered this photo from Life magazine in 1958.
This isn't the exact photo of Baez and Dylan that I remember, but it looks like it might have been taken on the same day.
The Beatles' arrival in America marked the start of a new musical era.
A company that I worked for in the mid-sixties did a classified, frame-by-frame analysis of the Zapruder film. Those grisly images are unforgettable.
This photo still tugs at my heart.
Dr. King's face seemed full of fear on this march in Memphis a few days before his assasination in 1968.
More than any other, this photo turned me against the Vietnam War.
This photo left me broken-hearted.
By the end of Woodstock, flower-power was already wilting.
This photo still frightens me.
The triumph of power over hope.
I could never understand Nixon's gesture as he left the White House in disgrace.
This iconic image expressed the hope of all Red Sox fans.
A candid father and son photo that made a hero seem human to me.
This photo is frightening because you know what happened a few seconds later.
