As the year comes to a close, it’s only natural to want to take a look back at the incredible moments we’ve experience in the past twelve months. As a society, we’ve shared experiences through the power of photography. On a daily basis, we’re exposed to countless images that not only document the lives of people around the world, but also shape our memories of a given point in time. Taking into account the political and social climate of the entire world, 2018 has been a tremendous year in photography.

It was another year of rallying cries in public streets and demands for justice, but one topic that’s really made way in 2018 is global warming and its effects on the world. Many photographers couldn’t help but notice the environmental impact of climate change across the globe. Capturing stunning images of rising sea levels and portraits of displaced animals was aplenty. Despite the divisiveness of politics and devastation of natural disasters, there were also several bright spots to focus in on.

As we take a look back, we hope to highlight the beauty of the world around us, and the people and animals who inhabit it. Poignant portraits, majestic landscapes, awesome aerials, and perfectly timed candid moments are engrained in our memories of the past 365 days.

This year has been filled with beauty, adventure, laughs, and wanderlust. Let’s take a look back with the best photos of 2018.
