Today is World Photography Day. In an age where everyone with a smartphone becomes an instant photographer, we shall only raise our glasses to the professionals – our photojournalists. As New Vision celebrates 35 years of existence, we revisit its entertainment archives and bring you the best 35 moments captured on camera through those years.  

A word of advice: if you can identify all those moments and the people in the pictures, please go for your jabs.
