Women Photograph’s 2018 in Pictures

 

In response to leading publications putting mostly men in their “Year in Pictures” review, Women Photograph have compiled their own list that reflects the underrepresented voices of those in their organization. The work varies from tackling issues of representation to photojournalist pieces found in National Geographic. One of the featured images, shot by Gulshan Khan, shows a woman at a protest against the murder of 59 Palestinian people, as another woman ties a keffiyeh around her. Another image by Kholood Eid depicts their journey of finding their trans identity as part of a larger series. With all the women included on this list, nearly half are women of color and from all parts of the world—showing the global citizenship of womanhood.
