Photographs transform a bus stop into a symphony of commuters, buses, shadows, glass, and concrete
Welcome to a new series of photo essays at the Atlantic titled Americans at Work. Our inaugural story about educators in Chicago comes from Chicago-based documentary photographer Marc Monaghan.
After another year of news stories that produced photos that can often be difficult or disturbing to view, I thought I’d take the time to compose an essay of uplifting images from the past year.
Time to take a look back at some of the most memorable events and images of 2016. Among the events covered in this essay: the U.S. presidential election; continued wars in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen; a new view of the planet Jupiter; and much more.
