OQ #18:
1.
Pic 1: Guido van Rossum, a fan of Monty Python
Pic 2: The Monty Python Players
Van Rossum conceived the Python programming language in 1989. He named the language after Monty Python's Flying Circus.
Added info: Industrial Light and Magic (George Lucas's CGI studio) utilizes Python to a great extent, so much so that the CGI for the Star Wars prequel films was done primarily on Python.
Thanks to Atulaa for extra funda.
Sticky and Arjun Murali get this right.

2.
Pic 1: John Wojtowicz
Pic 2: Salvatore Naturile
Pic 3: Attica Correctional Facility, New York
Connect: Dog Day Afternoon
Al Pacino's character was inspired by Wojtowicz, while John Cazale's was inspired by Naturile. And of course, Attica! Attica! Attica! (a reference to the Attica prison riots)

3.
Piss Christ. Andres Serrano immersed the crucifix in his urine.
Added info: Many of Serrano's pictures involve bodily fluids in some way. His Blood and Semen III is used as the cover for Metallica's Load while his Piss and Blood is used as the cover for ReLoad.
