Summary note
"In 2020, the world experienced massive change. Millions of lives were upended by the Covid-19 pandemic. The shocking police killings of Black men and women gave rise to powerful social movements and widespread collective action to rectify centuries of injustice and racism. Together, these colossal events tested the resilience of the social fabric bringing us all together. Attempting to illuminate and make sense of this new reality, artists from around the world documented these revolutionary moments as they unfolded. Now, many of their images have been collected in this beautiful and thought-provoking compendium. The founders of Scopio, the largest online photographic library, have organized these photographs around several themes, including: - Hidden Heroes - Lockdown Lifestyle - Love and Togetherness - Creativity Unleashed - Future Leaders Representing artists from around the globe, The Year Time Stopped seeks to empower us and give credence to the extraordinary circumstances that changed our world. The 200 images in this striking collection are indelible, impassioned, and unforgettable. Taken together, they are a singular testament to this unprecedented time"-- Provided by publisher.
