“Pictures of the Year: 75 Years of the World’s Best Photography”

April 6, 2018 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


We can’t stop looking at this photo of Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, taken during her 1993 Senate confirmation hearing. And it’s not just us: The shot was selected by the photojournalism organization Pictures of the Year International as part of an exhibit of more than 100 fascinating and significant news photos ($24.95). What makes this particular image so compelling? “It’s unusual because she’s normally a very physically reserved person,” says Irin Carmon, coauthor of the hit 2015 book Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “One of the ways that she overcame the many difficulties of her life was being rather stoic, so it’s interesting that in this she’s openly exultant. I think it captures her spirit, but she very rarely was openly merry this way in public.”
