TIME has unveiled their online portal where you can count down and learn all about the Top 100 most influential images of all time—pure photo geek nirvana. If you’re thinking this is just another list, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. This project is equal parts visual inspiration and photography history lesson, complete with 20 short documentaries and many never-before-told stories behind some of these iconic images.
“There is no formula that makes a picture influential,” explains TIME on the project’s About page. “Some images are on our list because they were the first of their kind, others because they shaped the way we think. And some made the cut because they directly changed the way we live. What all 100 share is that they are turning points in our human experience.”
