Let’s play a game. Would you be able to recognize a historic picture from another one taken just a moment earlier? Most photographic icons leave behind others which are dismissed and mediocre but that still help to explain the events and put them in context. Forgotten photographs, B Sides, rescued to tell the whole truth or that simply make the stories around their famous big sisters more human. For fetishists of photography, nostalgics of icons or History lovers. Ready?

The ones I could not recognize were photo's that I wasn't at all familiar with, otherwise I think they are all pretty obvious. This is not to discount how amazing it is to see these moments prior to the iconic images, it's really cool, just also really obvious what's about to occur.
The shot of the Clash that would later become the Londing Calling cover caught me by surprise though.
