2008 in photographs

We stumbled across a stunning collection of images summing up a few of this years big events. With 40 images in total its worth taking 5 minutes out of your day to reflect on the ups and downs of the past year.
The series was collected by the brilliant "news stories in photographs" site:

Here are some of our favorites:

"Photographers take pictures of an injured man during clashes believed to be linked to recent anti-foreigner violence in Reiger Park informal settlement in South Africa on May 20, 2008."

"Staff stand in a meeting room at the Lehman Brothers offices in the financial district of Canary Wharf in London September 11, 2008. Lehman Brothers eventually filed for bankruptcy."

"Samuel Peter from Nigeria receives a punch from Vitali Klitschko of Ukraine during their WBC heavyweight boxing world championship fight in Berlin."

"Swiss pilot Yves Rossy, the world's first man to fly with a jet-powered fixed-wing apparatus strapped to his back, flies during his first official demonstration, on May 14, 2008 above Bex, Switzerland."

The collection is split into three sections: 1/3---2/3---3/3
