Photographers strive to create images that impact others. Their photography has the power to change attitudes and behavior – for better or worse.
We’ve all seen the timeless images that have inspired nations: raising the flag at Iwo Jima, the mother and child during the Great Depression, and the sailor dipping and kissing the nurse on V-J day. These images are technically excellent but most importantly they personify feelings, good or bad, that countless people can relate too. People from all races and places are united by a common empathy for the subjects.
