If pictures truly say 1,000 words then here would be the polygamy stories told in 2012.

There were young women who left Warren Jeffs’ rule to have a better life. There were people in and out of a polygamous relationships who tried to help others.

Enjoy some of the photographs of polygamy coverage from 2012. You can discuss these photos and more memories from 2012 on Twitter by following the tag #sltrib2012.
