Reuters bezeichnet sich selbst als größte internationale Nachrichten-Agentur. Inwiefern das mit den vor Jahren rekrutierten „Amateurreportern“ zu tun hat, vermag ich nicht zu beurteilen – sicherlich verfügt die Agentur aber auch über hochkarätige Profifotografen. Deren beste Werke werden nun schon zum 6. mal zu einem Bildband vereint, der ab morgen in den Handel kommt. Die Agentur schreibt dazu: „The sixth volume in this high-impact series captures 2012 in over 330 powerful photos. With events such as the London Olympics, Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, the American elections and political and financial unrest in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, this book once again provides a unique perspective on a highly significant year. Reuters Our World Now 6 is organized into four sections representing the four quarters of the year. The images cover the full range of news reporting – politics, commerce, conflict, accidents and disasters, the environment, faith and festivities, entertainment, celebrity and lifestyle. Succinct captions summarize the story behind each image. ‘Witness’ features in each chapter present powerful, in-depth photo-essays from around the world. An introduction explains in the photographers’ own words, the events and approaches that lead to spectacular photojournalism. This highly successful series has built to become an indispensable visual record of our times. Like the previous Our World Now volumes, it consistently packs an emotional punch: spectacular, moving, hard-hitting, at times even funny.“

A voter checks her name before casting her vote during the second day of voting in Egypt's presidential election, at a polling station in Giza, south of Cairo June 17, 2012. A second day of voting on Sunday will deliver Egypt's first freely elected president, though the country faces renewed tension whether he is a former general from the old guard or an Islamist from the long-suppressed Muslim Brotherhood.
