To hear him tell it, the photograph , by Getty Images stringer Rich Lam, was pure luck. Then I went back to the editing room, and looked at it. My jaw dropped. Many cried that the instantly iconic shot was manipulated as it first made the rounds online this morning, but Lam spoke with NPR, the New York Daily News , MSN and more about the photo and said no such thing about staging or digital altering. She was crying and he just kissed her to calm her down. I am a student photographer and I shot some images and video from the roof. It also shows the boy, who she may or may not have known, trying to protect her from the riot squad… I would like to clear up the situation so that the jokes at this poor girls expense can end.

This collection of images is a testament to a mere fraction of the conflicts and triumphs, catastrophes and achievements and simple but poignant moments of everyday life in the past days. Week after week, protesters poured onto the wide boulevards of Hong Kong, where the photographer Lam Yik Fei seemed to be everywhere. Brexit drew tens of thousands into the streets of London. A subway fare increase was the final spark that led to protests in Santiago, Chile, and people heaved makeshift bombs along a bridge linking Venezuela and Colombia. Every year the photo editors of The New York Times cull through days of photographs in an attempt to recapture and visually distill the year. The result is this collection of images, a visual chronicle of violence, political power struggles, climate catastrophes, mass shootings and a few poignant scenes of everyday life. Some stories were obvious in their photographic power.
