Iconic Photographs

Edith Shain, who was one of the subjects in the classic World War II photograph of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square in August 1945, has passed away at the age of 91 (via Reuters).  This news got us to thinking about how photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt’s  V-J Day photograph, featuring Shain, is truly one of the most iconic images in the history of photography. What other photos come to mind when you think of iconic shots? What about Steve McCurry’s “Afghan Girl,” which was published on the June 1985 cover of National Geographic? Perhaps The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album cover image, taken by Iain Macmillan?
