Reuters photographers produce over half a million images every year. Some pictures define an event, others capture a moment revealing an aspect of the human condition. In this gallery Reuters photographers offer unique insight into some of our best pictures of the year as chosen by Reuters photo editors. Remember, these are news and documentary photographers who cover world events from war and tragedy to life’s poignant moments.
As a contributing photographer to Reuters I always look forward to this time of year to catch up on the great work my colleagues around the world produce. They never disappoint.
