Pictures of the Year

December 29, 2022
By the staff of The Morning
Good morning. Today we look at some of the most memorable photos published in The Times this year.
Photographers for The New York Times trod around the globe in 2022 to document news, history and everyday life, whether embedded alongside troops on the front lines in Ukraine, chronicling lawmakers in the halls of Congress or reporting from floods and wildfires on several continents.
Near the end of the year, The Times publishes its annual Year in Pictures feature. This edition of The Morning is a tribute to the work of The Times’s photographers.
The photos
Millions of people fled Ukraine in the early weeks of Russia’s invasion, seeking refuge in other countries. Desperate families shoved their way onto a train leaving the capital, Kyiv, in early March:

For years, China’s government had stuck to its zero-Covid strategy of going to extreme lengths to mitigate the virus, before easing restrictions late this year after highly unusual protests. The government had locked down entire cities, erecting security checkpoints and other barriers. In May, a worker locked a fence around a residential area in Shanghai:

Gun violence in the U.S. is a global outlier; firearms kill more Americans than they do people in any comparable nation. In May, 10 Black people were shot to death in a racist massacre at a supermarket in Buffalo. Among the victims was 65-year-old Celestine Chaney, who was buying ingredients for a favorite indulgence, strawberry shortcake. At her funeral, her granddaughter Charon Reed, 24, held her own son:

Ten days after the Buffalo shooting, 19 children and two teachers were shot to death at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. A bullet ripped through a fourth-grade math notebook belonging to one of the victims, 10-year-old Uziyah Garcia:

The Jan. 6 committee used television as a way to achieve maximum impact in June. “This was TV meant to break through, and to matter,” The Times’s chief television critic, James Poniewozik, wrote:

Ukraine’s military surprised most experts by not only staving off defeat but also forcing Russian soldiers to retreat in parts of the country. Here, an artillery unit from Ukraine’s 58th Brigade fired at Russian infantry in August in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine:

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, several state laws changed to further restrict abortion procedures. Catrina Rainey had learned in May that one of the twins she was carrying had a severe birth defect, was unlikely to live past six months outside the womb and could threaten the viability of the other twin. She underwent a termination of the unhealthy fetus to protect the healthy sibling. It was one of the last such procedures performed in Ohio, which outlawed them after the Supreme Court’s ruling.
