The Big Picture is one of my favorite sites for viewing photojournalism online. Below are links to their look back at the past year in pictures. As Alan Taylor, the editor of The Big Picture, points out "it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. It's not the story of 2008, it's certainly not all stories, but as a collection it does show a good portion of what life has been like over the past 12 months."
Caution: Some images are graphic in nature and are not appropriate for all ages.
