The Kissing Soldier You’ve probably seen the sailor kissing the nurse at the parade photo so many times that you might have wondered whether it was real or not. The iconic photo was in fact taken at Times Square on August 14, 1945. After the end of the 2nd world war. It was V-J Day, and the streets were rife with celebrations at the news of the Japanese finally surrendering. The nurse in the photo was Greta Zimmer Friedman who described the moment as “not much of a kiss” and that it “was much more of a jubilant act that he didn’t have to go back.” The sailor never gave her his name, but photographer for Life magazine, Alfred Eisenstaedt caught the moment on camera in what would arguably one of the most iconic photos from the World War II era. 6. La Jeune Fille a la Fleur At the time this series of photos were taken, Jane Rose Kasmir was only 17 years old. And there she is, a teenager standing in front of a line of armed soldiers with their weapons pointed at Kasmir, to which she responds with the offering of a small flower. The photo was taken in 1967 by Marc Riboud and it would a defining moment that represented the mindset of the youth culture during the 60s: one of desiring peace and non violent reactions. In the era where “flower power” was at its height, there couldn’t have been a more perfect image captures of a young mod girl holding out pink petals to armed men. 5. Tommie Smith at the 1968 Olympics Now 72 years old, Tommie C. Smith was only in his 20s when he would make one of the most memorable gestures at an Olympics ceremony ever. After winning first place the 200 m run, Smith, along with fellow teammate John Carlos (who won bronze in the same event) would raise their fists symbolizing black power in solidarity with those suffering at the hands of racial segregation in the United States, as well as Apartheid that was happening in South Africa at the time. The third man on the podium is Australian athlete Peter Norman who wore his Olympic Project for Human Rights badge in solidarity. 4. Pele and Bobby Moore Along with the Olympics, the World Cup is another world stage for athletes from all over to gather and compete. When you have countries coming together in an intensely competitive environment, things can often get a little heated. Or with things that happened during a match inadvertently causing a ruckus between teams of different nations. But in a moment of peace and friendship, after a match during the 1970 WOrld Cup in Mexico was captured on camera. The two men are famous footballers Bobby Moore of England and one of the most celebrated athletes ever, Pele of Brazil. After Brazil won, Moore and Pele traded jerseys and smiles to show there was no animosity between the two for the results on the pitch. 3. The Marine With a Cigarette The man in this famous historical photo taken during World War II is Angelos Klonis, who was smoking a cigarette when the photographer pressed the capture button on the camera. It’s an an image that would later be used on the cover of Life magazine, with many people not knowing the name of the marine staring behind him in the distance. Klonis was “the American hero” in the picture, a immigrant from Greece who left his home country when he was only 15 years old to “live the American Dream.” He returned to America after the war and opened a cafe in Santa Fe. 2. Tank Man The identity of the man in this infamous photo from the streets near Tiananmen Square, China is still unknown to this day, despite the event having taken place on Junge 5, 1989. Many just refer to him as Tank Man, a seemingly ordinary citizen carrying what has been speculated to be grocery bags, standing his ground against a line of tanks the Chinese military had deployed onto the streets of Beijing in reaction to the Tiananmen Square protests. There’s also video and other photos from different perspectives available of the iconic and mysterious moment that came to represent power to the people, no matter how many or few. 1. Earthrise by William Anders Lots of people can take a picture of the sunrise, no matter where you are in the world. But at the time, only NASA astronaut William Anders could take a photo of the earth at this angle. Named “Earthrise” the breathtaking photo was taken on the surface of the moon in 1968 during the apollo 8 mission. And while humans have taken probably millions of photos from space since then, the Earthrise is still considered one of the most “influential environmental photograph ever taken.” And it was taken from space by a human being. How epic is that?
