Time after time in 2012, Bloomberg photographers came through with striking, pointed, poignant and just plain beautiful images -- from the dire impact of Hurricane Sandy to people voting on Greece's role in the European Union and Facebook's IPO fiasco.

From Jamie Dimon in the U.S. and Bob Diamond in the U.K. testifying to governmental committees, to Sheldon Adelson surrounded by lion dancers in Macau, China, to Warren Buffett and Bill Gates at the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting, Bloomberg photographers worked throughout 2012 creating remarkable images of the most important figures in business and finance.
