A single drop of milk. A star-studded selfie. A falling man. The ravages of war and terrorism.
All are included in Time's 100 most influential photos of all time, a multimedia project the magazine released on Thursday through a new book, videos, and a website. The images span all parts of history, from the 1955 killing of 14-year-old Emmett Till to the famous 2014 Oscars selfie initiated by Ellen DeGeneres.
Time staff interviewed the photographers of the iconic photos and invited picture subjects, friends and family to write essays on each image. Check out a sample of the iconic images here, or for the full collection, head to Time Magazine's website.
