    Much better then the one that followed: http://iconicphotos.files.wordpress....sh02.jpg?w=700

    I agree about the story - I was fortunate to hear it directly from Karsh himself.

    Not a fun pic, but the one by Dmitri Baltermants of the women looking for sons, husbands, fathers and friends at Kerch in 1942

    Perhaps the strongest war image that comes to mind, and although well known is often overshadowed by the huge American publishing machine which gives the impression that only the USA has ever produced war photographs

    Some years ago I visited her old home at Freshwater on the Isle of White and that same wallpaper was still on the wall. Perhaps she also had some pasted to a board that she used in her converted chicken shed?

    If you lived where I live, you could see a JMC exhibition every day!

    My choice as well, and made in the 1960's when I first saw the image in a Photography book by Eric De La Mare which I bought as a teenager while at school.

    I love historic pictures, but my favorite is one my great grandfather made, which I reprinted in the early 80's of my grandmother, her two brothers and their mother, my great grandmother. Did you follow that? I'm not sure I did... anyway, I uploaded it to the gallery here awhile ago.

    There are lots of others I like, too, but this one has a personal connection.

    My favorite and supposedly the most reproduced photo in history. Interestingly it's a cropped version of the original, the second link.

    Wow this is pretty scary.

    I happen to agree that this image is mine as well. When I looked at this thread I did not immediately open because I did not want to be influenced ... but the first image that came to my mind was this exact one.

    What is it about this image , as I have her books and she made a lot of images and this one stands out.

    Is it possibly that this young woman transcends time???? hmmm.
