Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
This year, our photographers captured subjects of all kinds: famous and little-known, athletic and political, human and canine. Here are our favorite shots from their assignments.
Dylan Borowski stretching before getting on the bull for a practice ride while training with Cooper Davis, a professional bull rider, in Buna, Tex. Photographed by Damon Winter in January.
The photographer Landon Nordeman visited the fashion shows in January during the spring 2016 haute couture season in Paris. This photo was taken backstage at Schiaparelli.
Photography is the easiest medium with which to be merely competent.
