Why should I go?
2020 was one of the most eventful years in recent history, marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, a contentious presidential election, and nationwide protests for racial equity. BPPA photojournalists from major news and media organizations—including the Boston Globe, the Boston Herald, Getty Images, and WBUR—recorded it all.
You can see these powerful images for yourself and discover how some of the region’s most outstanding photographers put themselves at risk to capture this unforgettable year. Globe photographer and BU alum Jessica Rinaldi (COM’01) won the BPPA’s Photographer of the Year and Pandemic Photo of the Year awards. Her work, included in the exhibition, is produced in collaboration with Photoville, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting a deeper understanding and greater access to the art of photography.
