Getty Images releases their 2020 Year in Review
Describing their top picks as the "most compelling moments" from 2020, leading visual communications company Getty Images has just released their 2020 Year in Review collection. Some incredible stills have made the cut for this year’s line-up.
The Year in Review is divided into multiple categories, with one hundred images selected to be featured in each category. The categories include: News, Entertainment, Sport and Archives. The Archives category showcases older images that were taken of iconic and noteworthy people that passed away in 2020.
The specially curated collection of images focuses on the stories that dominated headlines this year, including: the impacts of COVID-19; scenes from the mass protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement; the effects of the summer bushfires and big moments from the world of sport.
Speaking on the 2020 Year in Review, Director of Editorial Photography Cassie Trotter commented,
“Though 2020 often felt that it would never end, our collection of images from this Year In Review shines a light on the moments that made us hopeful.”
“This year saw multiple cities around Australia come together in solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement. Sporting codes pivoted as restrictions eased, allowing seasons to start up again and fans to re-enter in-stadium games. The reopening of beaches and the border between Australia and New Zealand marked another major milestone in the nation’s recovery.”
“These are the images that will fill textbooks decades from now. Our team at Getty Images were of the few that were capturing stories from meetings at Parliament House, hospital rooms, sporting matches and so on, to tell the stories that marked this year and keep the rest of the nation informed.”
