Women Photograph: 2020 Year in Pictures

Dec 29, 2020
Oriana Koren, photo-ethnographer, writer, and curator of the 2020 Year in Pictures writes:

The one hundred photographs by one hundred women  across gender expression and identity, across that pseudo-science fiction we call race, across geography, region, and location, across the spectrum of age and the spectrum of human experience — have come together to illustrate for us what it looks like to become human in the age of a pandemic and on the precipice, not of impending extinction, but of imminent evolution. The entire world is upside down, but these photographers show us how we have been, every day, putting it back together again to create a new, more human experience of living time simultaneously, together.

Happy to have a photo on this year in pinctures with the family of Women Photograph.
