Video: Reuters Reviews the Best Photos Captured by their Staffers in 2013

Reuters’ photographers captured some incredible photographs in 2013, and now that the year is wrapping up, it’s only fitting that they compile the best of them into a Photos of the Year slideshow that will hopefully inspire you to take on your photographic goals with renewed vigor in 2014.

The photos range in subject matter from conflict photography, to natural disasters, to sports photography and even some celebrity photos that, when placed right before photos of tragedy, seem quite a bit less important than the tabloids make them out to be.

From the video’s description:

As the largest international multimedia news provider, Reuters provides coverage around the globe and across topics including business, financial, national, and international news. For over 160 years, Reuters has maintained its reputation for speed, accuracy, and impact while providing exclusives, incisive commentary and forward-looking analysis.

If you manage to scrounge up a couple of free minutes today, we don’t think you’d regret spending them reliving some of the most poignant moments of 2013, made all the more poignant because they were captured by world-class photographers.

    well yes, the media train around that particular night was still rolling weeks and months after. no different to any other big media event that deserves a POY

    Seems like an odd way to celebrate pictures of the year: allow only 2-3 seconds to view each. Any place else on the web where they can be examined at a more leisurely pace?
