Moments in Time 2013
By Toronto Star Photographers

Picture-taking is part of  daily life: anyone can tweet, Instagram or post to Facebook. But for Toronto Star photographers, photography is a powerful medium to capture life itself: grief, jubilation, dejection, wonderment. Moments in Time: The Stories Behind the Toronto Star’s Great Photographs, 2013 gathers the best from more than half a million pictures taken by Star photographers in 2013, with each photographer’s candid story behind the image. From a quadriplegic man making the first ever BASE jump in a wheelchair to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford raging at the media to the comfy embrace of Canada’s first legally-wed gay couple, what sets these pictures apart? “Lighting, framing, mastery of the camera,” writes Star visuals editor Taras Slawnych. “The ability to capture the perfect moment.”
