AFP's Greatest Pictures Of The Year

We're not quite sure how, but we've reached December (no, we don't know where October went either) which means its time to start drafting the New Year's resolutions and look back at the blur that was 2014. 

Putting the year into harsh focus is the AFP's annual photography review - press images that recorded the shocking, brutal and baffling stories that shaped the world. 

Topics included in this year's collection range from the outbreak of Ebola to the protests of Hong Kong, environmental disasters in Pakistan to Luis Suarez's infamous bite. 

Grab a comfy seat and lose yourself to the last 12 months. You can see the full series on the AFP site
