When disaster strikes...She is there!

4 year-old Zoe Roth ran to the burning house in her neighborhood on a fateful morning in January, 2005. Her Dad was a few steps behind with camera in tow, and quickly snapped a few photos of Zoe flashing a devilish grin with the inferno ablaze. One photo stood out, and was published in 2008. Discovered by internet connoisseurs, it rapidly spread to every corner of the world, becoming one of the most recognizable images of the 21st century.
