    AFGHANISTAN | 1984 Editor Bill Garrett had a fabulous
    eye: It was he who plucked this Kodachrome frame from a
    pile of rejects and made it the most famous cover image in
    the magazine’s history. (Steve McCurry, p. 244) Click here for a larger image

    CANADA | 1909 Portrait of the explorer as a cold
    man: Whether Robert E. Peary and his assistant,

    before them. (Robert E. Peary Collection, NGS, p. 61) Click here for a larger image
