Moments of hope, joy, tragedy, and history are captured in a rare collection of 17 iconic photographs assembled from the work of the foremost photojournalists of their generation.
These images show extraordinary moments: Steve Jobs speaks to his team at NeXT, launched after he was fired from Apple in 1985. Joe Frazier decks Muhammad Ali in the 1971 "fight of the century." Marilyn Monroe smiles while swathed in silk sheets in 1961. Refugees are stranded on the border between Greece and Macedonia. Soldiers and loved ones mourn a fallen comrade at a funeral in Ukraine.

The collection showcases transformative events by photographers who shaped the golden age of photojournalism, often risking their lives to give a voice to the voiceless and make important issues visible. Among them is James Nachtwey, the world's foremost conflict photographer and winner of ICFJ's inaugural Award for Excellence in Visual Journalism.
Other outstanding photographers represented in this collection are David Hume Kennerly, White House photographer and Pulitzer Prize-winner; the late Douglas Kirkland, whose images shine an intimate light on Hollywood stars; and Sebastiao Salgado, whose internationally acclaimed work spotlights crucial social, economic, and environmental issues.
Photographs are printed on archival paper by the photographers' own labs or by the legendary PICTO Lab of Paris and New York, which has served top photographers since 1950. All prints are signed and dated by the photographer. Prints are approximately 20" x 30" with a 2.5" matte and a black wooden frame (exact dimensions are listed with each photo). In cases where the photograph is signed on the verso, a window is cut in the matte for viewing.
We are grateful to the photographers and their heirs who have donated these powerful images, to PICTO Lab for printing, matting and framing, and to the Findlay Galleries in New York for hosting a preview of the collection.
