In a year when the still image maintained its unparalleled power to inform, to shock and, at times, to delight, TIME’s portraits once again put a human face on many of 2013’s most relevant and gripping stories. As photographers traveled around the globe to illuminate the personalities of the year’s signature newsmakers, the regional, racial and ideological diversity of those depicted comprise a kind of meta-portrait of a world both deeply fractured and profoundly interconnected.

Today TIME pays tribute to the trailblazers, visionaries and cultural ambassadors who defined a nation: The 20 Most Influential Americans of All Time.

Pictured: Professor Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955), mathematical physicist at home in 1925. 

He was the greatest mind and paramount icon of our age, the kindly, absentminded professor whose wild halo of hair, piercing eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius: Albert Einstein.

This list comes from the new TIME book The 100 Most Influential People of All Time, which profiles spiritual icons, leaders, explorers, visionaries and cultural titans throughout human history.

The latest issue of TIME, featuring our Summer Olympics special, will hit newsstands Friday. Our U.S. readers will see track and field athlete Lolo Jones, swimmer Ryan Lochte, and gymnast Gabby Douglas on the cover of TIME.

Hey, Instagrammers! Our editors want your Instagram photos to illustrate a magazine story on mobile technology.

TIME is looking at the role of the cellphone in everyday life, and we want your phone pictures to help illustrate this project. Our goal is to feature your photos from around the world–and show as many countries as possible.

To become a part of the project, include the hashtag #TIMEwireless  when you post your picture to Instagram so that we and our partners may use it. (The photo you submit must be taken by you and you acknowledge that use of the photo will not violate anyone’s rights.) Please include a caption with your name and where in the world you’re located, and geotag the photo. Need suggestions for what to shoot? Here are a few ideas from our editors:

  • Self-portrait
  • Your home
  • What you ate for breakfast this morning
  • Landscape that shows where in the world you are

We are accepting submissions now, so please send your pictures today.

Ten months ago TIME released, 9/11: Portraits of Resilience — a compelling project that revealed the astonishing testimonies from over 40 men and women on the events that followed September 11, 2001.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce we’ve been nominated for an Emmy for this very piece in the category ‘New Approaches to News & Documentary Programming: Documentaries.’ To celebrate this accomplishment, revisit the stories of the men and women who moved the nation here.

KayKay McGowan, 18, The Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth, Boston.

After the article was published, KayKay’s mother Meghan House followed up with us: 

"I don’t think it’s really sunk in how momentous this is. A black gay youth that comes from a small white town, is in TIME magazine, it’s extraordinary. Maybe certain people are going to read this article, and it might change their minds about things."

You can see more of the portraits from the magazine here.
