15 Of The Most Unbelievably Powerful Pictures Ever Clicked

By KK Angus, 17 June

We see hundreds of pictures throughout a day. On social media, in films, magazines, shows, cartoons, milk cartons. But how many of these pictures really inspire us? How many of these photos actually make us think or head to Google to learn more about it? How many pictures actually makes us curious?

You might say it’s subjective. Even a juice box can make you think and learn. But we are talking about a broader understanding of things that don’t technically concern you but will give you a newer perspective. Photos which capture the moment so splendidly that you cannot help but marvel at them and think about who clicked them. For instance, have you ever seen the casting call ad for Nirvana’s Teen Spirit music video? Do you know about Christopher Lightsey and his criminal history? Here’s presenting some pictures so powerful and emphatic it will wrack your brain.

1The story of Chacha

This is a picture of a male chimpanzee named Chacha who had escaped from the Yagiyama Zoological Park. In this photo Chacha viciously screams at a man who tries to capture him in northern Japan. Although how one man could manage such a difficult task is beyond us. Chacha was eventually caught after he was shot with a tranquilizer gun, which made him fall from the power lines.
