Seventh Edition of FOTOvision by Scott Mc Kiernan

Join us for this FREE evening event and experience photography from across the globe.    

World renown picture editor and photo-journalist Scott Mc Kiernan presents 365: a Visual Review of 2021, Photography that ran moments after shot year long on ThePicturesOftheDay.com. Images from more than 60 countries.
It was a year that we won’t ever forget, yet strangely so like 2020. Did we live a Groundhog Day movie? 2020 again? 2021 again transformed the lives of each of the planets seven billion plus. We elected a new President who promised us a calm time and took us on a roller coaster of confusion. Maybe USA's worse year of overseas policy in a long time. Economy spiraling fueled by record inflation. Now most recently Canadian truckers started a world movement to fight COVID vaccines. Canadians? Did not see that coming. 2021 Documented in year’s most striking images, presented chronologically. Grab a cup of tea or something stronger and settle in. Been a Year to remember and forget.
After ZUMA Press movie, there will be Q&A on the imagery and highlights of 2021. It is a not to be missed visual tour de force!
