2021 Photos – The New York Times


Times photographer Erin Schaff was covering Joe Biden’s election certificate at the Capitol on January 6 when he heard protesters making noise inside the building. She walked over to the sounds to document what was happening.

Soon, a mob ran through the Capitol. Two or three men, dressed in black, surrounded Erin and asked her where she worked. When she saw “The New York Times” on her congressional media badge, they threw her to the ground, tore one of her cameras and smashed another before running away.

Erin then went to the rescue only the police officers, who thought she was a rebel, pointed the gun at her and shouted at her to get down on her hands and knees. Once the authorities realized she was a journalist, they helped her and two other photographers find a room to block themselves.

Running towards the story is an integral part of photojournalism, even if it involves physical danger. Hundreds of photographers from around the world who work for the Times generally do so quietly. They rarely go on TV or on podcasts, and their names appear in small categories below their photos.

But readers understand the key character of their work. Today’s edition of The Morning is a tribute to Times photography, which includes 12 photos that helped capture this year’s news. They come from the now-released Annual Pictures feature.

Take a closer look and you will see Erin’s name in the credits with the pictures below.
