From Brexit to the Rio Olympic Games, the local Australian elections to the unfolding refugee crisis, 2016 saw the Getty Images’ editorial team of award-winning photographers provide coverage of all the biggest events to hit the world this year.
The Getty Images Year in Focus 2016 collection curates the year that was in stunning photographs, including the defining moments that encapsulate the global news agenda and events of 2016.
The images captured by Getty Images photographers are designed to connect people to the world through the power of pictures, from political chaos and war-torn zones, to the moments the world celebrated, from the Oscars and Fashion Week to Usain Bolt’s winning shot.
