From the Mexican border to North Korea, from the refugee crisis that roiled Europe to the traumatized boys of Boko Haram, award-winning photojournalists supported by the Pulitzer Center traveled the world in 2017 to bring back remarkable stories and compelling images. Each year at this time, we select our favorites—and invite you to revisit some of the most memorable moments of the last 12 months.
