Reuters photojournalists continually bear witness to events as they happen across the globe. Producing some 1600 images a day, their award-winning work pushes the boundaries of news photography. Sometimes surprising, sometimes devastating, always compelling, the images in this book, taken by 143 photographers of 55 nationalities, encompass the drama and diversity of trends and topics that defined the past year.
With an introduction by Reuters European Editor, Paul Taylor, over 300 striking images and behind-the-scenes Witness features, this highly successful series has become an indispensable record of our times and demonstrates the enduring power of visual storytelling.
Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, Vice President of Reuters Pictures and picture editor of the series said: “The Our World Now photography book series has become a collector’s item. This success points to the unparalleled global impact of photography, and to our mission at Reuters of journalistic excellence. In Our World Now 6 our photographers captured new struggle for survival in Europe as well as ongoing street battles in Syria and the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. They combined key world moments with intimate details, forming a multi-layered visual story that very few have the privilege to tell.”
