The sixth volume in this high-impact series captures 2012 in over 330 powerful photos. The book is organized into four sections representing the four quarters of the year. The images cover the full range of news reporting – politics, commerce, conflict, accidents and disasters, the environment, faith and festivities, entertainment, celebrity and lifestyle. Succinct captions summarize the story behind each image. ‘Witness’ features in each chapter present powerful, in-depth photo-essays from around the world. An introduction explains in the photographers’ own words the events and approaches that lead to spectacular photojournalism. Like the previous Our World Now volumes, this is a book that consistently packs an emotional punch: spectacular, moving, hard-hitting, at times even funny. This highly successful series has built to become an indispensable visual record of our times, with over 100,000 copies now sold worldwide.
