TIME The Year in Review
2019. It was the year of Brexit, Barr and AOC. The year Lizzo spoke her truth and became a body-positive icon. Mass protests exploded in Hong Kong. Notre Dame fell, a tragedy that spread far beyond Paris. Now, this special edition presents 2019 in all its power, tumult and triumph.
Full of vivid, time-stopping photos, this archive captures the year in all its political and cultural complexity, from the singular individuals who helped shape and define it, to the truly global forces and events that affect us all. Let this capsule remind you of the recent and profound before you turn your gaze to the new year.
