Continuing this blogs theme of showcasing influential photographs that changed the world, the above is Josef Koudelka’s iconic 1968 picture of the Soviet invasion of Prague, the capital city of Czechoslovakia. As the Time Magazine wrote in their explanation of Koudelka’s iconic photograph: (His) ‘most seminal piece includes a man’s arm in the foreground, showing on his wristwatch a moment of the Soviet invasion with a deserted street in the distance.
