The Most Acclaimed Photojournalism Of 2013
In 2013, Time Magazine sent its photographers everywhere from Afghanistan to Russia to Venezuela to the Central African Republic with one goal in mind: cover the most important stories of the day in the most easily understood–and therefore compelling–way possible.
