So, what can your determine in looking at these three iconic images?

Charles Moore's photo from the Civil Rights movement in the 1960's.

Eddie Adams won the Pulitzer Prize for for his picture of a Viet Cong lieutenant being executed at close range on a Saigon street by a South Vietnamese general.
