Photojournalists from Agence France-Presse, the legendary news service, were on the scene capturing the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., the ensuing war in Afghanistan, political upheaval in Argentina, civil war in Algeria, and the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.These and other important news events of the year-plus sensational couture shows in Paris, the space voyage of Dennis Tito, the world's first 'space tourist,' catastrophic floods in Bangladesh, and the eruption of Mount Etna in Italy-are all here, in compelling, revealing photographs taken by some of the most experienced and talented photojournalists at work today.

Agence France-Presse, the world's oldest established news agency, was founded in 1835 by Charles-Louis Havas, the father of global journalism. The agency operates worldwide, providing both international and local news to thousands of subscribers from its main headquarters in Paris and from regional centers in Washington, Hong Kong, and Montevideo.
