Nour Chamoun and Christina Hawatmeh present The Year Time Stopped: The Global Pandemic in Photos

In conversation with contributors Simi Vijay, Sarah Aoun, Jason Little, and Jenna Petrone

It's far from news that in 2020, the world experienced massive change. Millions of lives were ended—and millions more upended—by the COVID-19 pandemic. The shocking police killings of Black men and women gave rise to powerful social movements and widespread collective action to rectify centuries of injustice and racism in the United States and globally. Attempting to illuminate and make sense of this new reality, photographers from around the world documented these transformational moments as they unfolded. In The Year Time Stopped, Christina Hawatmeh and Nour Chamoun—founders of Scopio, a community-based photo storytelling platform and marketplace—have collected 200 striking photographs by artists around the globe to create a lush four-color compendium of indelible, impassioned, and unforgettable temporal artifacts. Chamoun and Hawatmeh are joined by contributing artists Simi Vijay, Sarah Aoun, Jason Little, and Jenna Petrone for a slideshow, talk, and audience Q&A reflecting on varied issues such as the Black Lives Matter movement and LGBTQ+ stories in the context of the pandemic.
