As a photojournalist, you have a front-row seat to history.
Documenting that history, often life’s triumphs and tragedies, is part of the job.
For the photojournalists of the Deseret News, 2017 was a historic year as they traveled around Utah, around the U.S. and even out of the country to cover some of the biggest stories.
From Houston’s Hurricane Harvey to the Las Vegas mass shooting to the fires of Santa Rosa, our photojournalists brought picture stories of strength and survival, hope and healing to Deseret News readers.
Through their lenses, readers saw the good in humanity as the country tried to come to terms with so many heartbreaking stories.
But there were also some lighter moments life offered this past year that helped bring some of the chaos back into focus and balance us.
Whether covering a STEM conference that saw a girl’s hair stand straight up or an epic eclipse that turned day to night, these moments captured our hearts.
