A photo of the first shot of a car crash is widely seen as a major turning point in the civil rights movement, which ignited a nationwide civil rights struggle.
The photograph was taken in the early 1960s by photographer Harry Johnson.
Johnson died in 2007.
Now, he has returned to his legacy and is looking to get his legacy back.
A photographer’s work has an impact on society through its impact on a culture, says Daniel Hirsch, a senior lecturer in history at the University of Cambridge.
The photographs of the people killed in the Rodney King riots and the 1968 riots were seminal events, Hirsch says.
It is impossible to imagine a better way of celebrating the fact that a photograph was made than by getting together with a group of people to photograph what they saw.
Hirsch, who is a professor at the Australian National University, says the photographs of Rodney King’s death are one of the most important photographs of all time.
“The photograph was the most iconic photo in the history of photography, and it is still the most influential photo in American popular culture,” he says.
Johnson was born in California in 1922.
He went to high school in San Francisco and attended the University at Albany before working as a photographer for the National Guard.
After working as an army photographer in the Pacific, he moved to the US as a war photographer in 1943 and took photos of US soldiers in the war in Europe.
Johnson’s photographs are now enshrined in the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
The photo of a woman on the moon and of a black man being arrested on charges of domestic violence has been immortalised in a photograph of Johnson taken in 1967.
Johnson took thousands of photographs of troops at various times in World War II, including the Battle of Okinawa and the Battle for Okinawa Bay, which occurred when the US fought the Japanese forces during World War Two.
The photograph shows two men standing on the shoulder of a Japanese soldier.
It depicts a white soldier holding a rifle in his right hand while his right arm is raised in a “victory pose”.
Hirsch says the photograph has a profound influence on our perceptions of race, and has inspired the Civil Rights movement.
“It’s a powerful image because it captures the racial tensions and the sense of humiliation, anger and fear that all Americans feel at the injustice of race relations,” he explains.
The photo of Johnson standing in the doorway of a restaurant during the lunch rush was published in the New York Times in 1965.
The story of the photograph is widely believed to have helped propel Johnson to his first major career as a photojournalist.
Johnson, who died in 2014, was a member of the Young Americans for Freedom chapter.
