2012 was a year of momentous events. An American president was reelected, financial crises blighted economies across the globe, a vicious civil war raged unabated in Syria, and amid it all a queen celebrated 60 years on the throne as London played host to the world for the Olympic Games. Getty Images photographers were again at the heart of the action, capturing the decisive moments as well as the atmosphere, emotions, and backstories. We’re proud to present our Year in Focus featuring the best of our photographic, video, and 360 interactive content.

How quickly we forget
Excellent book. You forget how much happens in a year so fast. As always some of the best images of the year and easy to use. Read what you want and skip the rest....but I bet you read it all.
