This is a special feature on African photographers who work for fashion magazines around the world. Each of them is unique, but especially Ogunbanwo, who says, “I have a great responsibility to document the times as they are.” A good photographer has a good philosophy. I have to be careful not to take flimsy pictures.

10 unforgettable images from our Year in Pictures issue

LINK 👉 National Geographic / 8, Dec, 2020

“National Geographic photographers document a year that tested, isolated, empowered, and brought hope to the world.”

Thoughts 💭 /
Beautiful pictures through National Geographic photographers. There were a lot of tough things happened world wide this year. Covid-19, BLM, US Presidential Election, Wildfires… most of the memories are quite tough. But when I look back this year personally, I had some good things like taking more time to talk with friends / families, taking more time to read, build a new web site. What is yours? I do hope 2021 would be a better year for the world, you, and me.
