Photos shook the world

The world is not divided into two parts, he is one. We all live on the same planet, but rarely know what was going on or happening at any given time on the other side of the world, though, making this collection, I realized that everything - good and bad - was in abundance. Of course, more on the negative events of our planet - murder, famine, wars ... the list can be endless. And strangely, it was photos with such terrible events as the best in the world. But photos of positive developments, such as such as the birth of a child, the love between man and woman, sunset and sunrise, almost no one is interested.

Such a coincidence is easy to explain, because the main task of journalism to pay attention to the problem, the suffering and the sad moments of other people, to those who live in their own little world a little thinking ... Of course, it is unpleasant to look at photos, full of pain, but not much interesting flipping photos with the same type of kiss, which in fact do not carry any meaning and prevent the realization that the world is not as good as it seems.

Take a look at the Pictures of the most memorable photographs taken mainly in the 20th century. From some pictures creepy and just want to cry ... How cruel this world ... Thank God that all this nightmare I had never seen in person, otherwise I do not know what would have happened to me. Each of these photos a symbol. The symbol of the era, a symbol of the event, a symbol of all living things (it's up to you).

I shall warn that the nervous and pregnant women better not to watch these pictures.

1. This picture is really shocking. It shows the truth of the suffering of children in the Sudan during the famine of 1993. The picture, which depicted a tiny exhausted girl, with all the remaining forces of creeping toward the camp of humanitarian aid, was made by photographer Kevin Carter. For this photograph, Carter won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize, but it cost him a great deal. The photographer had to wait specially hungry vulture, who calmly walked in circles waiting for the death of the baby, only for the frame to be the most epic. After 20 minutes, Carter still made photos and drove the bird from the child. After receiving the award for the picture and the wave of criticism Kevin Carter committed suicide. This happened in 1994.

2. August 6, 1945 the picture was taken mushroom cloud over Hiroshima. The spectacle is really frightening.

3. November 25, 1963 John F. Kennedy family said goodbye to him. The slain president was buried with full honors 3 days after the death of the two bullets elucidated Lee Harvey Oswald (who is not officially listed as a killer, but he was the prime suspect). By the way, two days very well shot Oswald in a police station. It is not known what motives prompted the worker stacks to kill the president.

4. This picture taken by photographer Robert Capa September 5, 1936, has long been a symbol of this bloody and ruthless Spanish Civil War. The photograph captured an armed militia, who had just received a fatal bullet. The picture, of course, very emotional and tragic, but it turns out it's just a successful production. To such conclusion experts came after carefully studied all the details (location and the location of the Battle of the dead body of a man).
