Moving Image: Our Week In Photos (May 18 - 24)


Welcome to "Moving Image," our slideshow of the best photos of the week from around the world.

The following photos tell the story of the most compelling events this week, capturing happenstance moments and monumental occurrences with a single click. The images that stopped us in our tracks the past seven days ranged from a lion tamer in action to an arresting sculpture by the artist Anish Kapoor in Berlin.

Let us know your favorite photos in the comments section and check back next week to see new images.
