Photographer Tara Wray wanted to capture 2020, the year that had everyone on their toes, in her own way. So she created Year of the Beast — a book that acts as her own diary and captures moments of joy, family and home.
For Wray, as for many of us, this past year was “intensely difficult,” she says. “But it also made me look at the world in new ways, which is what I tried to capture. I hope that people will see themselves, or their families or loved ones in these pictures.”
Her book is being published by Too Tired Press, a company started by Wray and her partner Kelly Burgess. Their aim is to support artists in getting their work out to the world without having to shell out thousands of dollars.
