The Year In Pictures: A Compilation


What better way to reflect on 2008 then through the year’s photos? The year has been marked by some of the greatest events in the last decade: the U.S. Election, the Olympics, genocide, terrorism, war, natural disasters, economic crisis and much more. Here is a photographic compilation of 2008 from some of the world’s leading publications. If you only have time for one, the Daily Beast collection is especially poignant.
