We asked a handful of our favourite photographers to look back at 2019 and remember it through the photographs they took. From i-D contributions to personal pictures of friends, family and strangers on the street, this is Lola and Pani: My Year in Photos.

Photographers Lola and Pani started shooting as a duo three or so years ago. Lola, originally from Poland, is a self-taught photographer. Pani, originally from Australia, studied photography briefly in Melbourne. Together they live in London and work on a range of different stories, from documentary to editorials, books to exhibitions, as well as running Palm* Studios -- a publisher focusing on photography curated and edited by Lola. The work captures the beauty of London, even in its most ordinary corners. For i-D this year they shot the cast of Top Boy, and a series of portraits from London's only LGBT+ youth centre.

Portrait of artist Ed Templeton photographed at his home in Huntington Beach California during our studio visit for Palm* Studios. It was a great experience to have an insight into Ed’s life and work space. An artist we have both admired for a long time.
