The Most Iconic Photographs From National Geographic's 125-Year History. Perhaps the most iconic National Geographic photo, Steve McCurry snapped this picture of an Afghan girl in a Pakistan refugee camp in 1984. It almost went unnoticed, until one editor rescued it from a pile and stuck it on the June 1985 Cover. Absolutely stunning photo. #nationalgeographic
