The 2021 Edition of IPA’s annual “OneShot” photography event deals with a subject that I can truly say is universal—the global Covid 19 Pandemic. People use that term “universal” so freely,” but I think it’s never had more meaning than now.
Looking through the poignant and profound images that were submitted, in all the categories, I realized that no matter what part of the world they came from, each one was relatable.
We have all gone, and continue to go, through this extraordinary time of Covid-19, even though isolated, ironically, together.
These exceptional images express all that we’ve felt, endured, lost, and gained through this crisis, in showing the impact of this pandemic on every aspect of life, and in highlighting who our true heroes are, from healthcare workers to food delivery people, who have now been elevated to their well-deserved, highest ranks.
Thank you to all the brilliant photographers who have said it visually and so movingly in “One Shot”. It was a privilege to be a part of selecting and sharing your stories—the world’s stories.
