The most important photographs of 2015

THESE are the photographs that defined 2015.

Getty Images has pulled the most important images after spending 2015 covering 130,000 news, sports and entertainment events at home and across the world.

From legendary surfer Mick Fanning facing down a shark attack in South Africa, to the 100-year ANZAC commemorations and of course the unseating of another Australian Prime Minister, Getty helped capture those key moments.

 

Check out a selection of the images below.
