It’s said that smell is the strongest sense linked to memory. Maybe. I’d argue that sight is more powerful. After you see this video you might agree. Reuters has compiled a video of their most exemplary images of 2013, and oh what a compilation. You may have seen a few or many of these images throughout the year via a wide array of news agencies, because they know their poignancy is undeniable. Whether you see them again or, luckily, for the first time, you’ll likely be enchanted.
The company, headquartered in London England, transmits and broadcasts news in 10 different languages, and its policy promoting ‘journalistic objectivity’ has often been a source of contention. But the images they put forth from the thousands of journalists they employ tell the stories, and fill in pieces you’d find between the lines. The photos you see here were taken from the video, but the video(below) holds far more.
Whether you remember the images or not they will almost certainly jog your memory back to the big events of the year now coming to a close. It’s visceral, endearing, sad, frightening and hopeful at times, but always beautiful. It’s only 3 minutes long, and like a Louis Armstrong song, just 3 minutes of pure bliss that won’t disenchant you.
