Great Press Photographs

The Guardian has an amazing look at “100 Years of Great Press Photographs.” Our region features prominently.

1968, Prague: “Josef Koudelka’s images of Russian tanks rolling into Prague in 1968 are an extraordinary chronicle of the mass protest that greeted their arrival. Devoid of movement, this image of an anonymous passer-by, whose watch records the exact time of the invasion, records a moment in which time seems to stand still.”

1992, Sarajevo: "'This was not the story of a mum who was crying because she was sending her son away...I was actually going with him on the bus...Instead, I was trying to hold back my tears because I knew that I was leaving my beloved country, which had been ruined by the folly of the war.' Gordana Burazor, evacuated from Sarajevo in 1992."

1999, Kukes, Albania: “Refugees from the war of secession from Serbia in Kosovo. Guzy, a working-class American, clearly empathises with the ethnic Albanian children savouring freedom from fear in the northern Albanian mountains.”
