Pictures go big with Full Focus

September 17, 2010

Today marks the launch of Reuters Full Focus, a large format showcase of Reuters award-winning photography, that tells stories from around the world. We aim to use powerful imagery to foster a deeper understanding of current events and social issues. The forum provides an opportunity for viewers to share their insights and perspectives on the photographs and the topics they address.
