Year in Focus 2016
20th January - 6th February
From Brexit to the Rio Olympic Games, the US elections to the ongoing refugee crisis, 2016 was an extraordinary year by any standards. Around the globe, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, Getty Images' award-winning photographers were there to record events as they happened.
Year in Focus 2016 celebrates the skill of this incredible team of photographers whose dedication, courage and perseverance resulted in the images on display. The power of each image to provoke a reaction is the result of each photographer's experience and understanding of their subject. Combined with artistic talent and supreme technical ability they prove without doubt the power of pictures. They are determined to take us, the viewer, to the heart of each event or to give us the best possible viewpoint, whether it is a breaking news story, an epic sporting moment or the front row of a fashion show.
The exhibition also pays tribute to the lives of David Bowie, Prince and Muhammad Ali alongside the astronauts who lost their lives 30 years ago in the Space Shuttle Challenger.
There are images that set the tone for political debate, launched a thousand memes and moved millions into action, all from a year that will go down as one of the most significant in history.
