Nine Of The World's Most Controversial Photographs by sweetguy10(m): 12:32am On Sep 24, 2013
1. A submarine captured photos of a diving mermaid during sonoprobe mission.

2. Brooke Shields – Unclad
Taken in 1975 by American fashion photographer – Garry Gross – this picture featured Brooke Shields Unclad. In 1981, a U.S. Court ruled that the images did not breach child Indecency laws. Pictures were purchased by Richard Prince in 1992, reproduced, and sold for $151,000 in 1999.

3.7/7 London Bombings
Dated July 7, 2005, CCTV cameras captured the bombers entering Luton station. Controversially, no other CCTV images have ever been released. Also, the photo is timed at four seconds before 7.22 am, which would have given the men only three minutes to walk up the stairs at Luton, buy their tickets, and move to the platform.

4. Mary Moorman JFK Picture
A witness to the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, Mary Ann Moorman is best known for her photograph that shows JFK a fraction of a second after being shot in the head. The photograph was taken approximately one sixth of a second after the bullet’s impact. Moorman’s original photograph was never confiscated by the FBI; she sold it for $175,000 on eBay.

5. NASA’s Photo of the Lunar Landing
Well, the world knows the controversy – how could the flag fly when there is no air on the surface of the moon. Secondly, the shadow created by the flag and its pole is opposite to the direction of the shadows of spacecraft and the astronaut.

6.Piss Christ
This photograph is here for a reason – a big controversy. This is the work of a notorious American photographer Andres Serrano who uses feces, corpses, and bodily fluids in his work. In 1987, he created a photograph titled Piss Christ, which depicted a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist’s urine. In 1989, the image was displayed for the first time and the event caused a massive scandal.

7.Pregnant Mummy
Again, a subject to controversy – a pregnant mummy.

8.Samar Hassan
Pulitzer Prize nominated Chris Hondros clicked it on January 18, 2005 while his travel to Iraq to cover the war. This is the photograph of 5-year-old Samar Hassan splattered in her parents’ blood, whose car failed to stop at U.S. checkpoint and was opened fire at.

9.Thomas Hoepker’s 9/11 Photo
Clicked by Thomas Hoepker on September 11, 2001, the photograph shows some people relaxing and enjoying a conversation while the Twin Towers burn in the background. The picture caused controversy in the American media when released in 2006.

i sense serious foul play here
if the flag must fly,it should fly away from the shuttle's direction,due to its exhaust(if it has)




i'm not going to say anything

i will try not to
argghh
i cant hold it anylonger

That mermaid pix is a bit eerie.

The NASA pic is a good proof that America never touched the moon. If they did they should make another visit.

Who in his or her right mind dips a crucifix in a urine? undecided

I pity that little girl.

Is there a Mod for this section? This needs fp.

The mermaid's pic though.

Interesting. Photos that speak history. I look forward to the collection of Nigerian historical photos as well (not that of biafra).

Obinoscopy, do something biko.

I like rich threads, not Tonto Dike-ism. tongue

Amazing controversial pictures. What is more amazing/controversial is the pics of American astronaut landing on the moon-it's extremely inconceivable.
Re: Nine Of The World's Most Controversial Photographs by Nobody: 8:07pm On Jul 05
The NASA picture is highly controversial.

How the hell can the flag sway when the space is clearly a vacuum and just take a look at the it's shadow.


BTW - Is that a mermaid? lipsrsealed
