TIME: 100 Photographs


Over the span of three years, TIME worked with global curators, photo editors, historians, & photographers to nominate the top contenders of the photos with the most historical significance. Then they conducted thousands of interviews with photographers, theirs subjects, friends, & family to answer – How do you quantify a photograph’s influence? At the end, the magazine unearthed 100 images along with their incredible stories to go with them. Whether it was the first of its kind, or because they shaped the way we think, or even by it directly changing the way we live, TIME introduces a 240-page hardback book to commemorate 175 years of photography and the birth of photojournalism.
