This image says a lot about the late Jimi Hendrix. It’s powerful because it was taken before his untimely demise at the age of 27 in 1970. He was an extremely talented guitarist, and he influenced many people during his reign. He also sang and performed his own music, which makes him one of the greatest in music history. Hendrix was even inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his contributions to music during his career.
Hendrix was phenomenal at playing blues, rock, jazz, soul, and whatever he put his fingers on. His versatility contributed to his unique signature in the music industry and to the distinctive sound he produced.
Audrey Hepburn, She's Just Like Us!
In this beautiful photo dated 1958, we see Audrey Hepburn holding a young baby fawn, which was her pet. Audrey was one of the most successful actresses of her time and was publicly known for her astonishing performance in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and many other movies. She was married to Mel Ferrer, and besides wonderful films, she has left her legacy behind, too.
Audrey Hepburn took home the baby fawn when in 1959, the "Green Mansions" director suggested she took home the baby animal so they could connect and perform better together on set. They bonded and formed an unbreakable relationship, one that Hepburn would famously be recognized.
Andre, the Giant
This image shows a young boy who is completely in awe before Andre the Giant’s sheer height. Andre was over 7 feet and 4 inches tall and was a well-known wrestler and actor. His most famous role was in the film "The Princess Bride," where his gigantism, caused by an excess of the growth hormone, came to good use.
For more than 15 years, Andre the Giant was undefeatable in the wrestling ring, and he thrashed big names, including Hulk Hogan. Some consider Andre the eighth wonder of the world, and since his death in 1993, no one has managed to replace this phenomenon.
One of the leading members of the German government during WWII is seen here in front of a POW. This photo is very influential and powerful because, unlike the other imprisoned soldiers, we see a shirtless man standing in defiance when the officer and his men walk past the others on the other side of the fence.
Almost 150,000 American soldiers were held as POWs during the horrific days of the Second World War, and more than 170,000 British soldiers were captivated, too. It is believed that almost 30% of all prisoners never survived and found their death in the camps.
If we had to choose the most famous album cover ever released, it had to be The Beatles, 1969, Abbey Road. It was the Fab Four's eleventh album and the last one they ever recorded together. The four fabulous musicians crossing the road have become an iconic symbol of the band; however, taking this shot wasn't as easy as it seems.
This photo was not done spontaneously and had to be taken a number of times before the perfect one was shot. Until this very day, the real Abbey Road in London is a famous landmark amongst all tourists and not only Beatles lovers.
