DuPage County photos of the year

hello
Success - Article sent! close
 

It's a little bit amazing in an age when everyone and everything seems to be captured on video that the power of a single, well-crafted image still can move us.

It can make us laugh or cry. It can make us angry. It can amaze us. It can make us pause.

Through all the clutter of an endless news cycle, it can remain etched in our memories.

We asked our photographers to share some of their favorite images of the past year.

Spend a little time examining these photographs and you'll see elation and sadness, glory and excitement.

You'll also get a feel for the talents of our shooters and their ability to bring you the awesome power of a still image.

Enjoy.
