The Year in Photos at Tufts 2020
By Alonso Nichols
It all started off so normally. Remember when a photo of a large crowd wouldn’t cause you to bat an eyelash? As I’ve begun to look back at the last year of images, suddenly the mundane is eye-catching.
A group of actors simply gathered together for a group photo on set of Sense and Sensibility. Students stood shoulder-to-shoulder to watch as visiting artist Lina Puerta led a papermaking workshop at SMFA. The women’s basketball team packed Cousens Gym as they steamrolled their way to the NCAA Division III national tournament.
When I photographed graduating medical school students Sebastian Hernandez, M20, and Christina Callas, M20, the couple’s biggest worry was whether or not they would match in the same city for their residencies during the upcoming Match Day. Little did they, or any of us, suspect that life as we knew it would change dramatically. In a matter of days, the full force of the COVID-19 pandemic would change it all.
