To help address this imbalance in photography, in which 85% of practicing photographers are men, Huck magazines sixth annual Documentary Photography Special is dedicated to championing the work of women photographers. The new issue celebrates exciting voices of change within photography – from emerging talent to established pioneers – who have broken new ground or disrupted the status quo in their own way.

Featuring:

Susan Meiselas - Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas has spent five decades questioning the practice of photography in groundbreaking ways. But whether it’s documenting the lives of showgirls or an unfolding revolution, her open-ended approach gives the images a life of their own.

Abbie Trayler-Smith - After learning all she could in the cut-throat world of photojournalism, Abbie Trayler-Smith realised it was time to focus on something that really mattered to her: fighting the taboo around obesity through stories of authentic experience.

Hannah Reyes Morales - Against the backdrop of Manila’s drug war, where fear and violence have become normalised, Hannah Reyes Morales has been seeking out moments of tenderness amid the adversity. And in learning how everyday life carries on undaunted, she’s come to better understand the place that’s shaped her.

Kendrick Brinson - In the heart of Arizona, Kendrick Brinson found a passion project she just can’t keep away from: a pioneering retirement community where no one believes in ‘acting your age’. By absorbing their lust for life – be it cheerleaders or synchronised swimmers – she’s learned not to fear growing old.

Mikiko Hara - Mikiko Hara doesn’t need a viewfinder. Instead the Japanese street photographer shoots from the chest, allowing the camera to capture happy accidents that come as a surprise… even to her.

Jane Hilton - Having grown up bored by what middle England had to offer, Jane Hilton has spent her career seeking out the most fascinating people she can find. It’s a quest that’s led her to the American West, where the lives of outsiders – from working girls to bull riders – are never quite what they seem.

Bieke Depoorter - After spending the night with strangers across Russia, the US and Egypt, Bieke Depoorter has been asking constant questions of herself – navigating what it means to be a photographer with the most intimate access imaginable.

Calla Kessler - Calla Kessler has come of age with a firm belief in photography’s power to connect people. But as a recent graduate uprooted from small-town Nebraska to Washington DC, she’s learned that sometimes pursuing truth means standing up and speaking out.

Nadira Amrani - In a landscape lacking in diversity, filmmaker and photographer Nadira Amrani is kickstarting her own movement: one that rejects outdated tropes of representation and pushes for more opportunities among people of colour.

Jessica Lehrman - Raised by nomads, Jessica Lehrman inherited a restless search for magic. These days she applies that spirit of wanderlust in a different way – documenting underground movements led by activists and rappers alike – but the underlying ethos is just the same.

Annie Tritt - After blossoming as a late-starting photographer, a search for authenticity led Annie Tritt to the lives of transgender and non-binary youth. But what she discovered would change her own life forever.

Natalie Keyssar - From the US to Latin America, Natalie Keyssar’s reportage uncovers the impact of social and political structures on everyday lives – capturing the violence of inequality and the mess of history in the making.

Sydelle Willow Smith - Growing up in post-apartheid South Africa, Sydelle Willow Smith often grappled with the country’s difficult past. But when it comes to examining the present, she’s found her relationship with home poses more questions than answers.

Lois Bielefeld - Lois Bielefeld has spent years documenting people’s domestic rituals, gathering intimate insight into a diverse range of lives while learning to better navigate her own journey.

Ada Bligaard Søby - Seventeen years after a painful breakup, Ada Bligaard Søby decided to make a book on life and love with her ex-boyfriend, pooling their family archives to plot a visual timeline of their lives. It turned out to be the wildest ride of her career.
