Kids today get a bad rap. Older folks love to moan about how the ubiquity of selfies symbolizes how self-centered and spoiled kids are. But everyone’s favorite subject has always been themselves. Since the invention of the camera, amateur photographers have turned the lens on themselves. Was it for some grand artistic statement? Nope. Just good old-fashioned narcissism. And if you really want to be mad at the kids for something, how about dubstep? Rabble, rabble, rabble.

Buzz Aldrin is the second bro to ever step foot on the Moon and today, as we celebrate his 83rd birthday, we look back at his fearlessness in the face of unimaginable danger with a collection of his most iconic photos, as they are some of the most important photos in history.
Last night at the launch event for AXE Apollo there was a special guest appearance. Buzz Aldrin. The second bro to ever step foot on the Moon. Take a moment to read his Wikipedia. The stories of his genius level intelligence and fearlessness in the face of unimaginable danger is awe-inspiring. Buzz didn’t do any press at the event and only showed face for a moment but I seized the opportunity by blowing past security and got to shake the hand of this American legend. Buzz was an critical piece in realizing the the dream of JFK as he said, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard” and because of this we pulled together a collection of his most iconic photos, as they are some of the most important photos in history.
