The Year in Photos

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Alive photo assignments are great. We get a glimpse into the lives and worlds of some of Columbus' most dynamic artists, musicians, comics, social activists and those making this city such a wonderful place to live.

We get to crisscross the city to visit chefs preparing meals in the finest establishments and those off-the-beaten-path restaurants keeping ethnic cooking and traditions alive and sharing them with the city.

In these photo galleries, please enjoy the life, energy and creativeness of these people who opened up to us as photographers.
