“The human face is where our emotions are best displayed,” says Ghanaian artist Kwesi Botchway (@k.botwe1). That’s where he tells his subjects’ stories. The face, and all the complexities it conveys, is the focus of an upcoming show of Botchway’s work at @gallery1957 in London. Titled “Becoming as well as Being,” the exhibition, running October 28 through December 13, is co-curated by the British writer Ekow Eshun (@ekoweshun) and will showcase 21 striking portraits that explore themes of identity, culture, and beauty. All of the works were created this year, during his residency at Gallery 1957’s original location in Accra, Ghana, under partial lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and amid a worldwide civil rights movement.

"The community organizers who were fighting for racial justice this summer, the people who work at nonprofits to make sure people are registered to vote, the voters who are participating, each one of them helps to protect the election, and their passion for democracy is contagious," says Priya Kukreja (@ppk.docx), a first-time poll worker in Omaha, Nebraska. At the link in our bio, Vogue worked with poll-worker recruitment organization @powerthepolls to speak to eight first-time poll workers across America—from Austin to Omaha to Birmingham and beyond—about what motivated them to become poll workers.

A first-time poll worker, Neha Valmiki from Austin, Texas says, "I live in Travis County, and we have 97 percent of eligible voters registered to vote, which is such a big increase from before. The 2020 elections have kind of brought a change not only to students, but people all around the country. I feel that people are wanting to become more civically engaged; I'm seeing so many people turn out, I'm seeing lines on our campus, off campus, and everywhere, I see people like wearing their 'I Voted' stickers. I definitely feel encouraged by all this turnout."

More than ever, designers are embracing mentorship, collaboration, community, and family ties—relationships that aren’t just emotional salve but creative inspiration as well. At @alexandermcqueen, Sarah Burton has drawn extensively on British craft traditions and collaborated with the country’s contemporary textile craftspeople, breathing new life into dying arts. “It’s our responsibility,” she says, “to protect the things we love from the past—but it is also our job to innovate.” Photographed by @christianmacdonaldstudio, styled by @tonnegood, Vogue, November 2020.

As a first-time poll worker this year, Mae Tesh from Asheville, North Carolina says, "I try to acknowledge the privilege that I have to be able to work the polls; I'm pretty young, I'm not high risk. And I think this election is incredibly important. I would hate for a lack of workers that certain polling to shut polling places down, so people wouldn't be able to go there to easily cast their vote. And I think it is a passion thing, because I am a political science major, but I would do it even if I had to skip classes, because it's just really important to me."

This year, many older volunteers, who make up the bulk of poll workers, are also at higher risk of contracting COVID-19, and stayed home accordingly. Luckily, younger volunteers came out in droves this year to bridge the gap and make sure polling places are adequately staffed ahead of Election Day.

Above: Georgia Hight-Schickel (@ghschickel) from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania says, "I knew there were going to be a lot of people who were worried [about voting] due to COVID, and I've seen that when I've gone to vote, it is a lot of older people volunteering as poll workers, so I felt like I needed to do my part as a young person to go and help make the process as efficient as possible. Having more poll workers and more places to vote could mean more people want to actually go vote rather than getting discouraged because they have to go a mile instead of a block. I’m kind of worried, because I probably will be interacting with a lot of people, but I'll double-mask up; I just felt like I really need to do something." Photographed by @gigilaub
