We may miss some famous images in that list, and be surprised by a couple of them being there, but for those who appreaciate photojournalism this is a very attractive showcase.

Captions are in Portuguese, but these images are so famous you won't need any. I only miss the reference to the photographers on some of them (Picasso's is by Robert Capa)

I find it funny that you should post something like this - just the other day I was investigating Dorothea Lange's iconic shot. Of the six images she made that day, only one 'turned out', so to speak.

Thanks for sharing that, M. It is so easy to get caught up in the here-and-now and ignore the fact that there was a "then". Some of those shots were images that contributed in my interest in photography in the first place.

Some great stuff but that Kevin Carter vulture photo always draws the most emotion for me when I see it. An amazing capture that tortured him for the remainder of his short life.

The Beatles one is titled 'Beatles em Liverpool'  which I assume means 'Beatles in Liverpool' but Abbey Road is actually in London. :)

Diana's photo (is it not her?) and the WTC one were not "most seen" for me.  And of course the guy forgot many others. 

There was a TV show here, in 2000 I think, named something like "The 100 photos that marked the 20th century", some of which are in that list. It was an interesting documentary. because each photo was presented in its historical background, sometimes interviewing the photographer himself, sometimes people who were involved in that particular moment.

These things are always hugely subjective. Naturally, as a photographer, I'm interested in photographs, but a few of those images I haven't seen either.

And there are some missing. Where's the photo of the earth rising over the moon from the Apollo 8 mission? That must surely be one of the iconic images of the 20th century.
