From documentation of climate change to portraits of modern country music icons, the power of photography spanned the globe in 2014. Today, we look back at five of 2014's featured articles about photography. On New Year's Day at 1 PM PST on KCET-TV, we will be airing a three-hour Artbound Marathon which will feature a mash up of our episodes from this year. We hope you enjoy catching up on all the artistic discussions and activities that pervaded arts and culture in 2014.
