Vancouver Photo One of the 40 Most Powerful Photos Ever Taken

Vancouver Riot Kissing Couple

According to Buzz Feed, the riot kissing couple was one of the most powerful photos taken in the last 100 years. Not sure if it belongs in this list but the photo is damn impressive and does capture a loving side of what was an ugly night in Vancouver. Congrats to Rich Lam on taking such a wonderful photo.

From Buzz Feed:
