Twenty-six of the best portraits from a year of privileged glimpses into extraordinary lives.

Twenty-six of the best portraits from a year of privileged glimpses into extraordinary lives.

As 2015 draws to a close, it’s time to look back over Huck’s year-long journey through DIY culture. We spent the year exploring the lives of inspiring people who swim against the tide to do things that matter – and we couldn’t have brought their stories to life without the photographers who share their talent with us each issue.

Collected here are twenty-six of the best portraits of the year.
