12+ Historical Pictures Of Famous People You Might Not Have Seen Before

Photography can be a beautiful method of artistic self-expression, a way to freeze a moment with your loved ones in time so you can revisit it any time you want. It’s a way for photographers to show us a moment in time and space we might otherwise never have seen, and it’s a way to take us back down memory lane like nothing else.

The people behind the Instagram account with the handle @historyphotographed have taken it upon themselves to share “the most powerful and entertaining historical images ever taken.” They post pictures taken through history, showing famous people and important historical events in a way we probably haven’t thought of before.
