The Collection


You've seen the photographs, now it's time to meet the master photographer's behind them.
Steve McCurry holds his 1984 photo of a young woman from Peshawar, Pakistan. "I looked for this girl for 17 years and finally found her in 2002. Her name is Sharbat Gula."
Wired has released a gallery of images that showcase the photographers behind some of the most iconic images in history. You'll recognize a lot of the images from National Geographic as most of them we're covers at one point.
Elliot Erwitt: "The picture I am holding was snapped in 1974 just across the street from my apartment in New York's Central Park. It has been 38 years since that event and sadly I have lost track of the participants."

Lyle Owerko: "No one knew such a beautiful warm day would serve as the backdrop to one of the most painful and confusing events to the heart of mankind. This picture is one small part of such a huge event that ties the threads of thousands of stories and millions of people together."
This fascinating gallery features 13 photographers, each with their image. I highly recommend you check it out. You'll rediscover some of the most timeless photographs in history and you just might see some you've missed. Let us know what you think in the comments. See the fully gallery on
