The Photo Issue
In December 2020, the Washington Post Magazine published a special 88-page 2020 Photo Issue comprised of nine different photo essays. From Baltimore to Los Angeles, Paris to Portland, this was a critical dispatch covering the three big stories for the year — and a way for future generations to not only understand the chaos, but also to glimpse the seeds of hope that show how we will endure. I designed five of the four photo essays for print and spearheaded the digital design, which can be found here: wapo.st/2020-photo-issue.
