    Most are classic. Some are bullshit.

    The only change I've ever experienced while viewing a picture has been the direction of my blood flow.

    Change the world. Some of them, a lot were just interesting photos of the time, but hardly world changing.

    Falling Man, Tank Man, Starving Boy with Vulture, Execution in Saigon, JFK assassination, VJ day in NYC, Burning Monk, Burmingham Alabama

    Some of THE most important pictures of the 20th century (yes I know falling man is technically 21st)

    It is crazy how much power a single picture frame can hold.

    More a reflection of the world. Thank goodness for photography. It shows us things we can remember forever.

    A nicely framed shot of somebody attempting a basketball dunk does not fit. The world, other than Nike advertising, didn't take it as deeply meaningful.

    That's Michael Jordan that was iconoclast.
    Its the Air Jordan insignia. It was remarkable. There's even a story behind it they were trying to get him to make a statement with his athletic ability. It stuck.

    That was in National Geographic. The list is for Time magazine.

    They found her like 25 years later. Her tough life in Afghanistan had taken a toll.

    They didn't say it was Time's most influential. Many were not originally published in time like the Ellen selfie and this one from 1860.

    Time wasn't founded until 1923.

    That was #2 in me eyes. Hilarious in that it features a sexual predator, too.

    Fair point but the Lincoln pic was in public domain and Nat Geo likely did not allow them to publish since they own the rights and do not want a competing periodical to publish them to sell magazines.

    While I live this photo I don't get the "toll". 25 years later and she's older, yes, slightly haggard but hardly ugly or wartorn. Beauty is fleeting.

    No. But let's not pretend the mature woman she became us ugly.

    Despite occurring in 2001, I think Falling Man will end up being THE photo of the 21st century.

    The images of the embryonic baby. When I first saw these as a young man, it sealed for me forever the question of "when is an unborn a human being".

    Gotta love that Saigon Execution photo. Too bad the truth behind it wasn't told at the time. Here's the truth....

    What do most people not understand about “Saigon Execution”?
    The photo shows General Loan, arm outstretched, shooting a prisoner who looked like a civilian, though he was actually a Viet Cong guerrilla. The picture was front-page news and ultimately won the Pulitzer Prize for spot photography. But Eddie Adams later said that the picture didn’t tell the story and that he was sorry he took it.

    The man who was shot was Bay Lop, who had beheaded people, been caught in the act of gunning down policemen, and killed the family of one of General Loan’s friends. That doesn’t necessarily justify what Loan did. But when stripped of context, it looked like someone from the South Vietnamese national police gunning down some helpless guy, and that was not the case. Bay Lop was the leader of a sophisticated assassination team that was attempting to knock off all the top leaders [of South Vietnam], and General Loan was on their list.

    But the picture had a big impact in the U.S., right?
    It had a huge impact, because people who were against the war immediately seized on it. And the North Vietnamese put on a propaganda tour around the world using the photo as its centerpiece, telling people: This is who we are fighting—this terrible regime in Saigon that guns down helpless prisoners.

    Fake News has been around a lot longer than most people think.

    And tomorrow, there will be another most retweeted photo and so on.

    Social media tweets are not the way to judge iconic

    Social media for better or worse is society now. Considering this is the most shared photo on social media ever (has been for the last 4 years), there is an argument IMO.

    Great photos and many are no doubt iconic, at least for their creativity. I think it would be quite a struggle to explain how the vast majority of them changed the world.
