In 2021, STAT’s contributing photographers found themselves on the frontlines of the pandemic once again. That meant documenting devastating stories as Covid wreaked havoc across the world. But it also meant picturing hope as new vaccines and treatment emerged.
At the same time, the year was about far more than the pandemic. There has been promising new research, including some that could offer a brighter future to patients with rare disease like Mateo Solorzano, seen above. There have been leaders pushing to make health care a just space, like Augustus White, a barrier-breaking physician who was Stanford’s first Black medical student. And, even in the midst of Covid, there have been stories of resilience in some of the country’s most vulnerable communities, as documented by Bethany Mollenkof.
Below is a selection of our favorite STAT photographs of patients, providers, technology, and medicine from 2021.
