Once a year, I take on the heroic effort of asking readers to send us their one favorite photo, without judgement or critique. This massive collection of hundreds and hundreds of images allow students and hobbyists to share space with emerging and significant photographers. 2020 allowed for a broad range of  subject matter from pandemic inspired photographs, reflections of social justice and outrage, conceptual and classic interpretations of the natural word, to beautiful and quirky photographs exploring the internal and external parts of our lives.

Thank you for your submissions and for being part of our amazing community.  Now, be prepared for 11 pages of almost 700 images — pour yourself a big cup of coffee or bigger glass of wine and celebrate the range of photographic expression in 2020. We wish you a healthy, happy, and creative 2021. – Aline Smithson

RICHMOND, VA, AUGUST 2 - Musician Pholo Kimbuende cools off in the James River in Richmond, VA to escape the summer heat in the midst of the global pandemic. Water is cleansing, washes away hurt, trauma, and fear after months of racial unrest across America. The artist reflects on the challenges of being in an interracial relationship. In the summer of 2020 there were plenty of each. But it is also rebirth (Photo by Kate Warren).
