  2. Spending his Summers at the French Riviera, Pablo Picasso found that working with clay was a relaxing summer respite from the more strenuous demands of painting. Full of Joie de vivre, his ceramic explorations have a whimsy and sense of freedom that is unmatched by his paintings and works in other media. 

    As some of his creations are up for auction this May, we took a closer look the market for Picasso’s ceramics.

  8. In the wake of the collapse of the Twin Towers, Lori Grinker captured three firemen raising an American flag amid the rubble. Overcome with emotion, the firefighters had walked from the World Trade Center to the North Cove Marina on the west side and found a boat mast with the flag on it. Returning to Ground Zero, they planted the flag in a moving symbolic gesture.

  13. Steve McCurry’s iconic image, made famous as the cover of National Geographic’s June 1985 issue, captures a young Afghan refugee living in Peshawar, Pakistan during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Known simply as Afghan Girl until she was identified by name in 2002, Sharbat Gula was 12 years old when McCurry photographed her in the refugee camp. Gula’s piercing green eyes and arresting stare have made this one of the most recognizable and beloved images in the history of photojournalism.
