Iraqi Kurds killed by poison gas 1988, having employed poison gas as a weapon in the war against Iran, Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein did not hesitate to use the same deadly method against his own nation’s Kurdish minority.

Death vigil in Sudan 1993, this picture shocked the world and earned the Pulitzer Prize for South African photographer Carter. After taking it, Carter chased away the vulture that threatened the child—but the memories of the many violent scenes he recorded in the waning years of apartheid were not so easily shaken. “You are making visual here,” he said of the photojournalist’s plight, “But inside something is screaming, ‘My God!’” A despondent Carter committed suicide in 1994.

Fireman and child in Oklahoma City 1995, appearing in newspaper from coast to coast, this picture of firefighter Chris Fields cradling the body of one-year-old Baylee Almon in his arms came to symbolize both the tragedy and the heroism involved in the terrorist bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City in April 1995

Capping a burning oil well in Kuwait 1991, as allied forces put an end to Saddam Hussein’s takeover of Kuwait, retreating Iraqi troops set fire to hundreds of oil wells. The massive operation to shut down the wells yielded this remarkable picture, in which the oil covering the workers lends the burnished repose of metal sculpture to a scene of frenzied activity.

The Hindenburg disaster, May 6, 1937--Passengers paid $400 to cross the Atlantic in luxury aboard the Hindenburg. The magnificent 804-foot-long dirigible boasted a dining room, a library and a lounge with a grand piano. While attempting to land at LakeHurst, New Jersey, after its 37th ocean crossing, the airship suddenly burst into flames. Of its 97 passengers and crew, 36 perished as the era of lighter-than-air commercial flight came to a tragic end. Though 22 newsreel and still photographers were on hand, this frame by photographer Sam Shere, of International News Photo, is perhaps best remembered.

Wounded infant found by American Soldier 1944--- the marines were clearing out caves on Saipan where hundreds of Japanese were hiding. The photographer’s caption on this photo: “The first live person that we found was a ‘living-dead’ tiny infant that had somehow become lodged with face straight down into the dirt and head almost concealed by being wedged under the edge of a rock…We had heard the tiny muffled cry and then had seen the bony body writhing, with its head as pivot.”

The execution of Ruth Snyder 1928 --- the rise of photo-illustrated tabloid created a generation of news photographers who would go to any length to get a picture, the more shocking the better. In this picture, the photographer strapped a hidden camera to his ankle to capture this famous murderess at the moment of her death. The New York Daily News ran it under a screaming one-word headline: DEAD!

A young woman deformed by mercury pollution 1971 --- the deformed and contorted body of a 16-year-old Tomoke Uemura was the result of mercury pollution that had also left her blind and mute. The same industrial waste had poisoned many other inhabitants of the Japanese fishing village of Minamata. A few weeks after this picture was taken, the photographer was severely beaten by goons working for the polluters, the Chisso Company. Uemura died six years later.

Courtney Love 1995, when the lipstick-smeared, foulmouthed Love found nirvana with Kurt Cobain, she established herself as an anti-fashion femme fatale, marrying the crown prince of grunge in a gown once owned by the lobotomized Hollywood outcast Frances Farmer. “I took heroin, pot, cocaine—anything I could get my hands on,” Love admitted. She was even accused of doing smack while pregnant with her daughter Frances Bean, which she denied. After her husband’s 1994 suicide, the former stripper, who once complained that men didn’t watch her undress because she was fat, remade herself with yoga, Buddhism, and cosmetic surgery. The Seattle-based sow’s ear then captured the Hollywood silk purse: a career as an actress, specializing, unsurprisingly, in playing paramours to outlaws like Larry Flynt and Andy Kaufman.

Sarah Luiz 1991, most women dread the start of bikini season, but for this bathing beauty, it couldn’t come soon enough. Deep inside, Jeff Luiz always knew he was a woman, and he began hormone treatments to change his sex at age 20 – until Blue Cross-Blue Shield threw a hissy fit and declined midstream to pay for his surgery. “I’m a half-and-half freak,” Luiz mourned. Fortunately, a wealthy businessman came to the rescue, and by 1994 Sarah was a new woman. She found, however, that sex wasn’t everything: Her marriage to the head chef of the restaurant where she waitressed eventually ended in divorce.
