Women Photograph - 2023 Year in Pictures

Dec 19, 2023
Summary
This year, the Women Photograph Year in Pictures takes us around the world with work from 100 members of our community. For this sixth edition of our annual photographic review, it once again feels like a year defined by conflict and strife, from the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake in February to the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War, to Hamas’ attack on Israel and the continuing Israeli bombardment of Gaza. Everywhere, it seems, we see evidence of continuing threats to human rights for women, LGBTQ+ people, and people of color in particular.
This year, the Women Photograph Year in Pictures takes us around the world with work from 100 members of our community. For this sixth edition of our annual photographic review, it once again feels like a year defined by conflict and strife, from the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake in February to the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War, to Hamas’ attack on Israel and the continuing Israeli bombardment of Gaza. Everywhere, it seems, we see evidence of continuing threats to human rights for women, LGBTQ+ people, and people of color in particular.

But there are still moments of love and human connection even in the most grim circumstances. We hope that you’ll spend some time with this edit from photographer, editor, curator, and community organizer Verónica Sanchis Bencomo and, as you look back over 2023, connect with a lesser-known story or learn something new about a major news event. You can pre-order the sixth issue of the Women Photograph Annual here, and donate to Women Photograph here. Thank you, and we wish everyone a safe and healthy end to 2023!
