RNC Didn’t Infringe Photographer’s Copyright, Montana Judge Rules | PDNPulse
The court ruled that the cropping and minor alterations to the light in the photograph did not transform the work. However, because the text in the mailer used Quist’s musicianship “to criticize his candidacy, subverting the purpose and function of the work,” it was transformative, the court ruled.

A Lynching in the Heartland: Marion, Indiana, August 7, 1930
by James H. Madison
On a hot August night in 1930 a crowd gathered in front of an Indiana jail—men, women, and children shouting and jeering, demanding that the sheriff release his three prisoners. Three African American teenagers—Tom Shipp, Abe Smith, and James Cameron—huddled inside their cells, charged with the murder of a white man and the rape of white woman. Some among the thousands of people in front of the jail formed a mob. They beat down the jail doors, pulled the three youths from their cells, brutally beat them, and dragged them to a tree on the courthouse square. At the last minute the mob spared Cameron, the youngest and most boyish of the trio. Smith and Shipp died, lynch ropes around their necks, their bodies hanging as the town photographer captured one of the most famous lynching photographs in American history.

Martin Luther King Funeral Life Magazine, April 19, 1968
When Chilean-born artist Alfredo Jaar moved to New York in 1982, he was troubled to discover that racial tensions still ran high long after the civil rights movement had passed its zenith. In Life Magazine, April 19, 1968, he manipulated the iconic Gordon Parks photograph of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral procession to highlight the disparity between the number of black and white mourners. Jaar's decision to present the work as a triptych, a traditional format for Christian altarpieces, helps identity King as a martyr.

"Sometimes I like the idea of making a picture that does not look like a human picture. Humans make pictures which tend to be about five feet above the ground looking out horizontally. I like very fast flying insects moving all over and I wonder what their view is from moment to moment. I have made a few pictures which show that physical viewpoint. . . . The tricycle is similar. It is an insect's view or it could be a child's view."

Thus William Eggleston explained the radical perspective he employed in this photograph of a child's tricycle seeming to dwarf the homes and automobile in the background. This photograph graced the cover of the catalogue for Eggleston's groundbreaking exhibition of color photographs at the Museum of Modern Art in 1976.

The World’s Best Photo? - NYTimes.com
A dramatic image of the assassination of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was named the Photo of the Year in the 2017 World Press Photo contest. The photo was taken in December during a routine assignment at a photo exhibition that Burhan Ozbilici, an Associated Press photographer, decided to attend at the last moment simply because it was on his way home. He arrived during Ambassador Andrey G. Karlov’s speech, and within moments a 22-year-old off-duty police officer, Mevlut Mert Altintas, opened fire. Although Mr. Ozbilici was no more than 15 feet from the gunman, he did not run.

"I knew it was a good frame and it was something that would tell a story," Bachman said about the moment he captured the image of Ieshia Evans, a nurse from Pennsylvania, before she was arrested. A Sheriff's Office jail log showed a 35-year-old woman with that name was booked on a charge of simple obstruction of a highway and had been released from custody.

This powerful image perfectly captures how divided America was when MLK died - The Washington Post
When King died, he was advocating for “radical economic change” and had taken a stance against the Vietnam War, Garrow said. Both of those issues alienated him from some former supporters. “People in the Democratic Party thought King had self-marginalized. His murder alters his historical status hugely. What people now remember is his post-assassination enshrinement.” Jaar’s work is a reminder of our historical realities.

Portrait of Sojourner Truth, 1864
This is one of several portraits that Sojourner Truth sold to finance her speaking tours in the 1860s. The caption reads, "I sell the shadow to support the substance." Abolitionists used photographs to call attention to the plight of slaves and to raise money for the antislavery cause. A famous example showed a "scourged back," purportedly scarred by whipping. In selling her own image, Truth raised the stakes of this practice.

The spread of the glass plate negative and albumen print to the United States in 1859 inspired the collection of small portraits called "cartes-de-visite" (visiting cards) in albums, spurring the rise of a culture of celebrity.

Born Isabella Baumfree, a slave, in upstate New York in 1797, she adopted the name Sojourner Truth when she became a Methodist minister in 1843. Within a decade she was traveling widely, lecturing against slavery, and in 1851 gave her famous speech, known as "Ain't I a Woman?" at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention.

The Falling Man - Tom Junod - 9/11 Suicide Photograph - Esquire
In truth, however, the Falling Man fell with neither the precision of an arrow nor the grace of an Olympic diver. He fell like everyone else, like all the other jumpers -- trying to hold on to the life he was leaving, which is to say that he fell desperately, inelegantly. In Drew's famous photograph, his humanity is in accord with the lines of the buildings. In the rest of the sequence -- the eleven outtakes -- his humanity stands apart.
