Our Best Photographs of 2016
Transport yourself around the world and see people creating and dealing with technological change in MIT Technology Review’s top photos of the year.
In 2016, we featured photographs from a dome filled with self-destructive mosquitos in Perugia and showed a surreal transportation startup in the Nevada desert. We took you to a Canadian pilot plant trying to capture carbon dioxide from the air; an experimental, immersive movie theater prototype in the Berkshire Hills, and a South Carolina town struggling with both the prosperity and inequality created by advanced manufacturing.
These are images not just of technology, but of the stories generated by new ideas and innovations. These photos show the visionaries who dream up innovations, the way those innovations take form, and how they in turn shape our culture and society.
We work with an incredibly talented group of photographers who come from diverse areas: fashion, fine art, photojournalism. Below are some of our favorite photos we commissioned in 2016.
