2018 year in photos: Sweet, sorrowful, triumphal and tragic

From the Eagles' Superbowl victory to the opioid crisis, WHYY photographers bring 2018 into focus.

The Eagles’ victory in Super Bowl LII was the marquee moment of 2018, and you can browse the photo gallery above to relive the thrill of victory and the delirium that followed.

Below you will find other moments, whether sweet or sorrowful, triumphal or tragic, captured by WHYY photographers throughout the year.

Our photo team also fanned out across the city to capture a day in the life of Philadelphia, a video that chronicles the tremendous effort and coordination required to keep the city running.

And videographer Kimberly Paynter struck a chord with this video about a Philly student who overcame his difficult childhood and is headed for Harvard.

And through the lens of Kimberly Paynter, we hear from Krishna worshiping, celibate monks from a remote part of India, who visited the United States for the the first time in April to teach dance at Drexel University.
