Your iconic portraits

A green-eyed  Afghan girl, identical twins with black bobs and a migrant mother tired of life.    These are just some of the world’s most iconic portraits, photographed by masters of the craft including Diane Arbus, Steve McCurry and Dorothea Lange.

 

Not simply pictures, these portraits have the power to shock, amuse, inform and reveal -- the best summing up complex situations in a single glance and flick of the shutter.

 

Now we want to see your portraits -- images of people from anywhere and everywhere around the world. Tell us why you took them and what the background story is.

 

We’ll choose the best ones and feature them on CNN International’s new arts and culture series, icon. Your deadline is November 16.
