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. We all know that he was an extremely talented guitarist and influenced many people during his reign.
He also sang and performed his own music, which makes him one of the greatest in music history. In fact, he was even inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his contributions to music during his career. Awesome indeed!
Cell Phone Camera, 2000
We’re going to take you back to the year 2000, to a time when camera phones didn’t exist and the Internet was still being tweaked. Well, that’s until Philippe Kahn came along. A tinkerer by trade as a software entrepreneur, Kahn was working on tech that could share images instantly.
Here we see Kahn demonstrating how to use LightSurf Technologies Inc.'s latest (at the time) wireless digital camera attached to a portable wireless cellphone. After some slight refinements, he made a deal with Sharp, which used his technology to release the first integrated camera phone in Japan.
A scarce photo in history, this photo was taken in 1945 when the Jewish prisoners from the internment camp were finally freed from the clutches of the German regime. The allied forces got to them on time.
The top part of the image shows, "The photograph inserted below was taken by Major Benjamin at the moment the first of the refugees at the train became aware of their liberation and started to move up the hill toward our troops."
Victory over Japan
Ah, who could forget this memorable moment in history? We have all seen this photo somewhere on the internet, and it has been proven to be one of the most viewed kissing scenes around the world. This was V-J Day or otherwise known as “Victory over Japan Day,” which was marked by the beginning of the end of World War II.
When the announcement was made that the US won, this sailor grabbed a total woman stranger and kissed her in the middle of Times Square in New York City on August 14th, 1945. Now, you might be wondering who took the photo. Well, his name is Alfred Eisenstaedt who just happened to capture this picture at the right place and at the right time.
An Icon, A Legend
Can you name a more iconic revenge look than Princess Diana’s little black dress? Nope, didn’t think so. It was dubbed the “Revenge Dress” for crying out loud! Diana stepped out in this off-the-shoulder Christina Stambolian dress for a gala at London’s Serpentine Gallery in June of 1994. But this wasn’t any old red carpet-event.
Diana made this public appearance on the very same day that her ex-husband Prince Charles publicly admitted to cheating on her with his now-wife Camilla Parker-Bowles. Instead of hiding from the public eye, she got the world’s attention with her head held high in this stunning, form-fitting gown. Diana’s “Revenge Dress” is a masterclass in using fashion to convey a message. Even after all these years, we can all agree that she looked absolutely immaculate.
