Here’s Hugh Pinney, of Getty Images, on the news images that made 2015 unforgettable…
"In my job as Vice President of News for EMEA at Getty Images, I have seen imagery from all corners of the globe; powerful and extraordinary photos documenting worldwide issues and local stories. Outstanding photographers have shown us the heart-breaking reality of the migrant crisis, the devastating aftermath of natural disasters in Nepal and a city united after the Paris attacks.
"The following photographs have taken foreign issues and helped turn them into a global priority. This is my selection of the 10 images that told some of the defining news stories of 2015."
