Reuters' best of 2013 shows photojournalism at its most powerful

Reuters photos of the year

Photography can be the difference between an average story and a great story. Reuters has put together a compilation of its best photos of the year, comprising 93 stories from around the world. The collection covers a huge range of subjects; from extreme poverty, disasters, and death to more lighthearted moments like Saudis performing two-wheel stunts in Toyota pickups. Each photo is accompanied by a caption from the photographer, explaining how and why they got the all-important shot, and the result is a fascinating collection of stories that both summarize the year and show the importance of photojournalism.

The collection features death and nudity and may be upsetting to some readers.
