by . February 22nd, 2015

It’s that time of the week again our top links of the week here at Shot List! This week Reuters celebrated their 30th anniversary with the 30 Years of Reuters Pictures. The series features some of the most iconic and powerful images taken over the course of 30 years by Reuters photographers. The agency took not only the best but also the images that changed how we see the world. Some photographs are enlightening and inspiring while others are that are emotionally charged and devastating. One of the notable images in the collection is the image by Arthur Tsang wherein a man stands in front of a convoy of tanks on the Avenue of Eternal Peace at Tiananmen Square in Beijing on June 5, 1989.  The collection is divided into a three-part post. You can view Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 by clicking the links.
