 As we reflect on 2020—the year of plentiful doom, it's important to remember it's also been a year of outstanding visual creativity, adaptation and boundaries being pushed harder and faster than we knew possible.
 
Sure, work has been tricky, and at times non-existent, but it's also been fascinating to see how we all rise to the challenge and use our language—photography—to tell the world's stories.
