Before you watch this new TED video on photos that changed the world, add a comment below describing the first one fitting the description that comes into your mind.
Let's see if our collective impressions match Jonathan Klein's.
The Kennedy Assasination
I think of the one where the Vietnamese guy is being executed on the street.
Good choice. that was my #2.
The man standing down the tanks at Tiananmen Square in 1989 still gives me chills.
The first "Earthrise" photos from astronauts looping around the moon come to mind.
The photo above is from Vietnam War. That is a story that only reminds us sad memories. See what Vietnamese people have been through to bring piece to their country? America doesn't always win huh?
"I think of the one where the Vietnamese guy is being executed on the street." exactly! this image has been taken in Vietnam war. even this happened for a long time ago, it still impress to any viewer.
The first picture was taken on June, 8 1972 at Tay Ninh Province by Christopher Wain. I also know the name of that kid. Her name is Phan Thi Kim Phuc. As I know, Kim Phuc met Christopher Wain again in 2010. Thanks for very impressive image.
