WARNING: SOME IMAGES CONTAIN GRAPHIC CONTENT OR NUDITY The conflict in Syria escalated as the pressure to oust President Bashar al-Assad intensified. Hurricane Sandy struck the U.S. Northeast leaving heavy destruction a week before the country re-elected Barack Obama as President. In this showcase, the photographers offer a behind the scenes account of the images that helped define the year. 98 PHOTOS

My favourite image of the most amazing Olympics ever. Genius!

These pictures of life remind me of how fortunate I am, bringing tears to my eyes at the pain and devestation most of the world lives in. I am a jobless, female college graduate in the US, with no family at Christmas, yet I feel blessed and I am grateful for the bounty in my life after being shown just some of this world’s sorrows. These photos have reminded me of how lucky I really am. Thank You!

There are A LOT of typos in the specs. PLEASE double check them. Ex. Canon 5F Mark II (Canon 5D Mark II),on the French couple kissing; 1/1300sec (1/8000). And there are a lot of spacing errors. Please have someone double check. Thanks

I don’t really understand about the photography, cause all of your pictures looks nice for me. The other cool points are, you traveling to many countries, and that’s makes me jealous >=) Keep up the good works :)

The most amazin

The quote on 36 makes it seem so much like a job with no emotion regarding what was in the picture.

When you look at those inmates in those very small cages alot of questions have to come to mind…..Im sure it makes the Therapist feel better. It truely is a sad thing to see that sometimes you have to treat a person like that because you cant trust them to behave. If you replaced the humans with animals in the picture you might think your looking at a Zoo. God have mercy on those guys and yes be thankful it s not you in there.

After all we as humans have accomplished, it is amazing how poorly we treat each other. All of these pictures in some form or another represent human disregard for humans through god, greed or political view.

I wished I understood why.

Smart, witty, humorous, original, and shocking; great photographs out of the souls of the photographers and the intensity of the moment and the subject; not too much hung up on the work of “old masters” or other theoretical rhetoric.
Great photos WITH captions and WITH a short explanation to go with and be an INTEGRAL PART of each…
The way I like to see CONTEMPORARY photography!
Thank you…

most of these photos lack humour. too much tragedy. please remember, dear photographers, that after a certain age all we need is… to laugh-laughed-laughed! happy new year and better photos in 2013!
