In 2019, our newsroom opted to really expand photo journalism on the site and offer readers a more visual way of connecting with civics and arts across the county.
Here I’ve picked out some of what I saw as the most compelling visual moments in Orange County during 2019 — from rallies to elections, from arts to civics. These photos were taken by me along with contributing photos such as the lead image you see above of a Santa Ana celebration.
