Photographs are not merely pieces of images that we look at. They are memories, emotions, and life, literally frozen in time. We are taken back in time to the time of the photos or the time that we first saw it. This is the amazing emotional command that photos wield.
It is amazing how this one form of art bound with tech manages to create such an impact in preserving time. Most of the time, we are reminded of the times and the stories that are associated with the events when we look at a photo. But we never give it much of a thought about the person who captured it or the camera that captured the photo.
But behind every one of those iconic photos, there is a camera and a photographer who acted in a way to capture the shot that now lives forever. So, it is important to know and give the necessary credit to the person who is responsible for the creation of a certain photo. It can be a very popular album cover or a magazine cover that is timeless, or it can be in a very dreaded place that very well could be the D-day of World War II. Whatever the scenario it is, some person made the decision to make it immortal by capturing it on camera.

In a world where millions of photos are being captured in one single day, these single photos create a huge impact.

Photographer Robert Capa captured the events of D-Day using his Contax II camera. He was one of the first troops to land on Omaha Beach and managed to take 106 pictures while under fire. Sadly, only 11 of those survived due to a processing accident in the Life magazine photo lab in London.
