Cannes Lions is a global advertising festival where 12,000 people from 94 countries come together to be inspired by seven unmissable days of learning, networking and celebration.

On Day 2 of the Festival, Co-Founder and CEO of Getty Images, Jonathan Klein delivered a Master Class session about a collection of his personal favorite images and why they've helped make an impact on the world.  Covering everything from a playful goldfish photo to poignant photographs such as Spencer Platt's award winning and controversial picture of Beirut's elite driving through a bombed neighborhood to Tim Graham's iconic picture of Princess Diana, Jonathan helps us understand why images are truly the universal language of the world that surpass even the biggest geographic barriers.
