Can anyone think of any good famous photos?
Im working on a project for my Drawing Logic class. We are going to create a Design using a Black and White photo of some one famous, or a Black and White photo that is just famous in itself (“Migrant mother” is one example). The problem is, I cant think of any! ive googled a bunch of images and cant make up my mind. Does anyone have any ideas of a really cool Black and White photo, that youd like to see in a large design? please help! and thanks in advance.

I thought of the marines raising the flag on Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima. There’s also a very famous photo of an Afghan women with striking blue eyes on the cover of a National Geographic a few years back. There’s a famous photo of Albert Einstein with his tongue sticking out. Ansel Adams did many famous landscapes of Yosemite and other National Parks.

Also, check out a book of photos from the 1950’s called “The Family of Man.” It contains many great photos, some of which are pretty famous.

Check out some of Diane Arbus’s work.
Her two most popular shots are “Child with Toy Hand Grenade in Central Park” and “Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, 1967”.
If you’ve seen The Shining, you will recognize that the twins in the movie were based on this photograph.

You could rip off Andy Warhol and use the picture of Marilyn Monroe over the subway grating with her skirt blowing up. The sunray pleats in her skirt could be a repeatable pattern across a large area. What about a photo of Abe Lincolns monument becasue it has resonance (means a lot) for many people. What about the photo of Jackie Kennedy of the day of JFKs funderal – or the picture of her son saluting? What about using a photo you have made yourself of a famous painted portrait like the Mona Lisa.
