Regardless of which words you would use to describe him, there’s one thing you cannot deny – his art conveys deep social and environmental issues through carefully crafted pictures that inspire people to stand up, take notice and act. His recent projects, especially the ones that depict global issues through the lens of fantasy & surrealism, have left a lasting mark on the world.

Images that impacted 2020

To say that 2020 would go down in history as one of the most significant years is an understatement to say the least. Although the Covid-19 pandemic and the 1.7 million deaths that it caused globally is one of the main things that 2020 would be known for, there are other equally heart-wrenching events too. Mother Earth showed her fury this year in the form of hurricanes, cyclones, earth quakes, volcanic eruptions, and wildfires that resulted in the loss of numerous lives and homes of both – humans and animals. But 2020 was not just about nature’s wrath, it was also about the wrath of the people against racial unrest and the declining state of democracy all over the world. However, these testing times also lead us to some of the greatest lessons we would ever learn. 2020 taught us that each one of us can be hero and make a difference if we stand in solidarity. 2020 taught us that we can achieve the balance between development and protecting the environment. And last but not the least, 2020 taught us to find happiness in the simple joys of life. To encapsulate all that happened this year, we have a compiled a collection of the most powerful images of 2020 – ones that rocked our nation and the world!

The only DSLRs of 2020

With rising technology and the increasing demand for more mirrorless cameras, DSLRs are getting vanished every year. You’d be surprised to know that only a few DSLRs were launched in 2020. It’s not easy to answer the query "Which is the best DSLR?” because the question means "Which is the best DSLR for me?” And the right solution to that question is on our Asian Photography YouTube Channel Video (Things to consider before buying a camera). It is very tough to say by the fact that while DSLRs are known for their flexibility and image and video quality, there are now a lot of mirrorless cameras that offer similar or potentially greater capabilities that are also worth considering. So, while this roundup will focus on DSLRs, we’ll also recommend some mirrorless cameras in our other article if you are planning for a mirrorless camera. In this article we have listed down the DSLRs launched in 2020. Sadly in the mirrorless age only four DSLRs were launched in India in the year 2020.
