While we stumble across frozen mounds of snow and slip-slide down the block awaiting the next East Coast snow, gaze, for a few, at a warmer Coney Island by long-time photojournalist and Contact contributor Andy Levin who had a multi-decade love affair with Coney Island before settling in his new home in New Orleans. We’re six months away from summer.

Jan 29, 1997 — In South Africa, four apartheid-era police officers, appearing before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, admit to the 1977 killing of Stephen Biko, a leader of the South African “Black consciousness” movement.

In 1969, Biko, a medical student, founded an organization for South Africa’s Black students to combat the minority government’s racist apartheid policies and to promote Black identity. In 1972, he helped organize the Black People’s Convention and in the next year was banned from politics by the Afrikaner government. Four years later, in September 1977, he was arrested for subversion. While in police custody in Port Elizabeth, Biko was brutally beaten and then driven 700 miles to Pretoria, where he was thrown into a cell. On September 12, 1977, he died naked and shackled on the filthy floor of a police hospital. News of the political killing, denied by the country’s white minority government, led to international protests and a U.N.-imposed arms embargo.

Matt Franjola was an American journalist, photographer and foreign correspondent for the Associated Press. Franjola, who covered the Vietnam War for the AP, was one of the last Americans to leave Saigon during the fall of the city to the North Vietnamese in 1975. He passed away in Jan 2015.

Jan 27, 2021 - International Holocaust Remembrance Day - Ginette Kolinka, born Cherkasky, on February 4, 1925 in Paris, is a survivor of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp. She is one of France’s most celebrated and outspoken voices on remembering the Holocaust.
Jane Evelyn Atwood took Ginette’s portrait for the Rina Castelnuovo’s Holocaust portrait series The Lonka Project in memory of her mother, a Shoah survivor.

Jan 27, 2021 - International Holocaust Remembrance Day - Eva Mozes Kor (January 31, 1934 – July 4, 2019) was a Romanian-born survivor of the Holocaust. Along with her twin sister Miriam, Kor was subjected to human experimentation under the direction of SS Doctor Josef Mengele at the Auschwitz concentration camp in German-occupied Poland during World War II. Her parents and two older sisters were killed in the gas chambers at Birkenau; only she and Miriam survived.

On his return to Russia Sunday, five months after he left in a coma from a near-fatal poisoning, Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny made it as far as border control.�Before Navalny’s passport could even be stamped, police officers at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Alexander S. Pushkin International Airport surrounded and detained him. He gave his wife a hug and a kiss goodbye before being led to a private room.

Francis Bacon in his studio, 1982 by Don MCCullin/Contact

In a new biography “Francis Bacon: Revelations” , Pulitzer prize-winning authors Mark Stevens and Annalyn Swan publishing new insights about one of the greatest artists of the 20th century.

Their research reveals Bacon as a man who pursued life’s excesses – from drink and drugs to promiscuity – while desperately longing for affectionate love and companionship, coming close to it with one lover Peter Lacy and eschewing the rumors of violence in their relationship.

The flaming Ahmadi oil fields, Kuwait, where retreating Iraqi troops destroyed wellheads setting oil wells on fire and creating a massive environmental disaster and capping their retreat from the first Gulf War. Contact photographer Tomas Muscionico was there documenting the efforts of Boots and Coots and others to cap the out of control fires synonymous with the first Gulf War, January 1991.

Some of the ‘Best of Contact’ for the year 2020. It’s not everything by a long-stretch and undoubtedly I’ve missed a few. And I am not going to caption each but mention the shooters who distinguished themselves, again and again.

Roban Bang in Wuhan, China; Yunghi Kim photographed in the NYC streets and subways early on; Ken Light was in the supermarkets and stores as panic buying took hold; David Binder shot mask sales and rode with Boston EMS; Todd Bigelow worked on four stories including the secret underground economy when LA went on lockdown but also followed the life of a single mother of two trying to hold onto her job while juggling the lives of her two school-age kids and their expectations. Ken Jarecke documented local entrepreneurship in mask making and food delivery and photographed in a local COVID ICU.
Yunghi’s essay on Hunger in NYC ran in the NYT while Wesaam al-Badry documented the lives of farm workers - essential to feeding the nation - toiling in all kinds of conditions rarely 6 feet apart, in the haze and smoke of nearby fires and in the middle of the night.

Kobi Wolf continued his amazing work out of Israel, as Israel went on three lockdowns and dealt with violent demonstrations against PM Bibi Netanyahu and his corruption charges. Kobi also followed his long term project on illicit settler outposts. Both Yunghi and Scott Goldsmith documented civil unrest and demos in NYC and Washington surrounding police brutality deaths. Jean-Claude Coutausse photographed exquisitely from Paris shooting the lockdown and a spirited Femen demonstration.

Steph Penn photographed flower growers destroying their crops because of delivery issues and lack of supply chain. Charles Ommanney in San Francisco shot the orange skyline as affected by the nearby massive fires. He and Deborah Copaken also photographed the social scene with park enthusiasts staying inside their circles.

David Burnett photographed Pres Trump at Pennsylvania rallies and later added to what Sean Hemmerle covered in a deserted NYC though especially creating a homage to the lost, closed season on Broadway. Sean’s “Casper” arm pointed to the voting booths on Election Day.
