Lightfoot Nose by Khoa A Dao

2020 will forever be remembered as a challenging year full of hardship, contrast, solidarity, and division. From the immediate impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic to the widespread protests against longstanding racial inequality, 2020 marked a definitive turning point for our city, our country, and the world.

As we sheltered in our homes and huddled around our phones and TVs, there were times when we felt—physically and ideologically—far, far apart from each other. Yet we adapted, slowly and imperfectly, to a new realty born out of the necessity to protect ourselves and our loved ones. We banded together in protest of institutional racism in the hope that future generations wouldn’t have to suffer the same injustices. We looked out for one another.

This collection of photos is a document to an unparalleled time, one that we will hopefully learn from, together.
