Photos that Changed the World by Peter Stepan

From triumph to tragedy, Photos that Changed the World gathers together images of pivotal moments in world history in one stunning volume.

In lavish two-page spreads, this book presents more than ninety of history’s most memorable photographs ¾ from the Wright Brothers’ first flight to the bombing of Peal Harbor, from the Martin Luther King’s speech "I Have a Dream" to Nelson Mandela’s release from prison. The volume features pictures from photography masters such as Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange, Yousuf Karsh, Diane Arbus and James Nachtwey, as well as iconic images from lesser-known and unknown photojournalists. Now available as an attractively prices flexi edition, Photos that Changed the World has been updated to include indelible images of the most significant recent events. Engaging essays accompany each photograph and tell the story behind each image.
