Occasionally an extraordinary photograph emerges, one that is more than a documentary record of an important event or memorable scene. The photograph itself becomes the event and, as a consequence, the world is measurably changed. The photographs presented here represent a personal selection of images that achieve this rare stature. They are not necessarily "great" photographs (although many of them are) or even "famous" photographs (although many are immediately familiar). But every one of them has been undeniably influential. Because of them and the information they revealed, the world was ever after a different place.--Publisher description.
