Salvador Dali and Coco Chanel at a smoking break. When Coco met Salvador she invited him and his wife Gala to live with her at her mansion and became lovers. A fun fact is that the only painting Coco bought in her life was a Dali: a bunch of spikes, a symbol of high couture.

This photo, known as “The Kiss of Life” was taken by Rocco Morabito in 1967 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1968. It shows a worker giving CPR to another, who was just electrocuted. Not only he survived: He died in 2002. Morabito took this picture when he was returning from covering a protest.
