I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Newscom is awesome because we get to work with the best in the business. Not just one of the best in the photography business, but all of the best. We’ve partnered with photographers and agencies from around the world and put them all on one platform for our customers to access quickly.
Reuters News Picture service is easily among the best and most recognized names in the photo industry. Checking out their collection of the best of 2011 images, it’s not hard to see why. They’ve got an incredible selection of images from all over the world. Many of their images are just plain mesmerizing while others fall into the emotional, shocking, dramatic, and real-life categories. Reuters has had a long time to grow to become the best. In 1851, Paul Julius Reuter, became famous for his news coverage with sources like the telegraph and a fleet of more than 200 carrier pigeons.
Even though they no longer use carrier pigeons (at least, we assume they don’t), Reuters still has a reputation for getting the news out quickly to the people who need it. We love having their images on our site, and we hope that you enjoy this small selection of some of their best images from the year. You can see more of the best of Reuters back at Newscom. (There are a lot of images on the page, so this link will take a minute or so to load. Please be patient, it will be so worth it.)
