To mark the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Reuters Pictures service, L’Instant-Paris Match publish 30 pictures from a three part retrospective edited by Alexia Singh, Editor-In-Charge of the Wider Image Desk.
“Iconic images rise to the surface over the years, you see them again and again in publications around the world and they become fixed in our collective consciousness. On the one hand this makes the job of editing a retrospective of 30 years of Reuters Pictures an easier task. However there are, of course, many more pictures that could have been included in this selection. When the iconic pictures match iconic events they are the obvious choices. But it’s also interesting to include images that stand up purely on the power of their aesthetic.”
