When I traveled to Santa Fe about a year ago to cover ‘Tribe to Trade’ for this issue, I was just a writer for the publication. A lot has changed since then. We can’t travel to do shoots, Zoom is our new “newsroom,” the intimacy of a photo shoot has been forgotten as six feet divide the photographer from the models and gone are the days of a printed magazine. Welcome to Image – the digital one. Designers, writers and photographers were challenged on new levels to produce a fully digital magazine amid a pandemic. They exceeded expectations to say the least – thank you. That trip to Santa Fe in January of 2020 was one of the last trips I’d take that year, and shortly after, the publication of Image would be put on hold – along with the rest of the world. I had rushed to finish my piece for the Spring 2020 issue. I turned it in right before spring break and expected to see my story in print once I came back from vacation. But we never went back to campus that semester, and the magazine’s publication date was pushed back – indefinitely. It was the middle of the summer when I got a call from Kate Redfield, Image magazine’s previous editor-in-chief. She had graduated in the spring and needed someone to take over the magazine – to finish the spring issue and start the next. Months into working on completing stories from and adding stories to the Spring 2020 issue, Chloe and I met in person for the first time at the shoot for ‘Role Call.’ To say this was unconventional is an understatement. All of our prior meetings had been virtual. Nonetheless, four months later, we turned a spring issue into a winter one. This issue became something we could have never foreseen. It captures life before and during the pandemic. In stories like ‘Tribe to Trade’ and ‘Oscar’s Girls’ you’ll see the time when travel was easier and dream internships weren’t canceled or remote. But you will also see the boom of creativity on social media in ‘Medial Moguls’ and the push to break boundaries in ‘Role Call.’ It’s the ‘20s, and we’ve got a long way to go and a lot to live up to.
