40 Must-See Photos From The Past

This page follows their journey and contains a great collection of cultural heritage. »These photographs all tell stories about the historical figures or events that they represent. Once taken simply to document their present, they now help us witness the past. Many photographs only become iconic shots years later, once we understand their importance and historical context. From historical landmarks and famous people to the basic daily routines of the past, these pictures portray the past in a way that we can empathize with and understand more intimately.« 40 must-see photos from the past.

Raton Salvaje

Amusement parks without amusement – Jaume Albert Martí’s »Raton Salvaje« is a portrait series of fairground ride and tombola ticket sellers sitting in their tiny cash desks – with colors that are bright and gaudy. Martí’s photos provide you a rarely moment, because without the audience around the focus moves to the workers in their cell.
