According to Buzz Feed, the riot kissing couple was one of the most powerful photos taken in the last 100 years. Not sure if it belongs in this list but the photo is damn impressive and does capture a loving side of what was an ugly night in Vancouver. Congrats to Rich Lam on taking such a wonderful photo.

From Buzz Feed:

Australian Scott Jones kisses his Canadian girlfriend Alex Thomas after she was knocked to the ground by a police officer’s riot shield in Vancouver, British Columbia. Canadians rioted after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins.
