This year, the Women Photograph Year in Pictures showcases the work of 100 of our 1,400+ members across the globe, highlighting assignment work, long term documentary projects, and personal stories from the past year. The continuing Russo-Ukrainian War dominated news cycles, as did growing concerns over the impacts of climate change worldwide and a near constant attack on human rights for women, migrants, and LGBTQIA+ people. COVID remains, but has significantly faded from public discourse and visualizations of our day-to-day lives. And as always, we hope you’ll find some moments of tenderness and quiet even in the midst of tension and chaos.
Artist, curator, and educator Endia Beal curated this year’s essay, taking us from including stories from Chile to Ukraine to Dagestan to South Africa.
