From the colorful bazaars of Istanbul to the felt gers of Ulaanbaatar, our contributing photojournalists have documented daily life - the struggles and the joys, the politics and sports, the living and the dead. It is through their eyes and by capturing with their cameras that EurasiaNet.org can present unique stories of people, events, and humanity in the South Caucasus, throughout Central Asia, across the Anatolian Plain, and over the rolling steppe of Mongolia.
These images are a look back at EurasiaNet's best photo coverage of news and stories from 2012. Although all of the excellent photos and hard work from our photographers cannot be featured on this select gallery of images, you can review all of our posted Photo Essays here  and our posted Audio Slideshows here. 
Finally, we would like to thank the courage and tenacity that our contributing photojournalists show every day.
