AFP’s Most Powerful Photos of 2012

As 2012 comes to a close, we reflect on this amazing year that has had its fair share of triumphs and hardships. At the forefront of many of the most memorable moments, both in the victorious and devastating sense, there have been photojournalists capturing images that would travel all around the world. Their dedication to their craft has produced some remarkable images over the year, many of which are included in global press agency Agence France Presse’s 2012 Best of the World in Photos list.

While the images themselves are beautifully composed, it’s the story behind each one that truly makes them worthy of attention. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and each one of these speaks volumes, enough to leave us speechless.
