After reviewing more than 2 million images captured on location in 2022, National Geographic editors selected 118 for the third annual issue of the magazine’s Year in Pictures issue.
Each photo tells its own compelling story and serves as a little exception in the anthology of life in 2022.
These include images taken in a Polish border town following the Russian invasion of Ukraine and at the site of NASA’s historic lunar rocket launch.
Almost every continent is covered in this selection, with locations ranging from 29,032 feet high for the first all-black Mount Everest expedition to 3,869 feet deep for the Endurance shipwreck.
Some NatGeo photographers used inventive techniques to capture these images, such as Ben Depp, who used a paramotor to document the Louisiana coast. A tripod was even picked up by a hyena when Jen Guyton photographed the animals in Kenya.
“Over the past few years we’ve worked really hard to hire photographers who are based around the world because their stories and perspective really matter and make storytelling stronger,” Whitney Johnson Latorre, vice president of Visuals and Immersive Experiences for National Geographic Media, Good Morning America told.
