January is normally a meh month.

No holidays. No family in town. All your friends are either on the wagon or on a diet. It’s the quiet before the storm.

Not so in 2017. January was the storm.

And from rain falling to suns setting to women marching, you were there to document it.

This is 21 ‘Grams, our compendium of the month that was, in 21 pictures.
