Jan. 21, 2013. U.S. President Barack Obama places his hand on two bibles as held by first lady Michelle Obama as his recites the oath of office during swearing-in ceremonies on the West front of the U.S Capitol in Washington. The first is the Bible used by former President Abraham Lincoln, when he took the oath of office in 1861. The second Bible is the so-called "traveling Bible," used by slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. From "Pictures of the Week: January 18 - January 25."

In 2013, TIME sent photographers on assignment to dozens of countries all over the world — Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Russia, The Philippines, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Venezuela, Pakistan, Myanmar, Central African Republic, Egypt, Dagestan, India — to name a few. From the tunnels deep underneath Moscow to the storm-ravaged aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, the halls of the White House and the chaos in the Central African Republic, TIME photographers captured some of the year’s most compelling images.

No one knows what news 2014 will bring — for better or for worse — but TIME continues to stand behind our commitment to bring our readers the strongest visual reporting through the magazine, TIME.com, LightBox and social media.
