letter from the editor
We tell stories.
We get tackled by football players, side-eyed
by the U.S. Secret Service and our motto is to ask
forgiveness, not permission. You can always go
back to ask for another quote, do another interview
or pull a brilliant phrase out of a corner of your
mind. But when the people leave and the lights go
down, you cannot capture another frame.
These are the photos of the year; moments
pulled from life, our photo staff's viewfinders and
the pages of the Daily. They range from portraits
of professors and fire chiefs to action shots
highlighting the human emotion that comes from
winning an election or a spot in the Elite Eight.
We don't have pens and notebooks. The
recorders we use document images, not sound. And
while we all have our preferred subjects - sports,
students, puppies - we are bound together by our
desire to tell stories through photographs. They say
a picture is worth a thousand words, and so this
issue is essentially a 22,000-word love letter to
you from the photo staff of The Michigan Daily. We
freeze moments in time so you can remember them
or discover them for the first time.
Our photographs are our stories, and these
are our photos of the year.
