While the New Year stands for new beginnings, resolutions, and clean slates, it’s also a chance to look back at 2012… a fascinating year. From the eyepopping athleticism of the Summer Olympics in London and the drama of the U.S. Presidential Election to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and the wildfires that ravaged Colorado, there was no lack of engaging photography in 2012. I browsed some of the collective “best of” 2012 and created the roundup below.
Human exaltation, powerful and heartbreaking photojournalism and awe-inspiring sports + nature photography. These photos made me pause and look for an extra second – enjoy.
[I've put the names of photogs/agencies credited under each image - if you're feeling extra sassy, look these photographers up for more great work. Links at the bottom for the galleries from which these images were curated. #respect to all the great photography of 2012. Great year for pictures.
[Also, a little aside... a humble thanks and much gratitude to you for paying attention to what I put out into the world in 2012 and for sharing my feeds / work / love. Big Happy New Year to you and yours. ]
