Huck 46 - The Documentary Photography Special II
Out September 8. — Huck's annual celebration of visual storytelling is back.

Is all photography fiction?

Last year, Huck’s love for visual storytelling sprang to life as the first Documentary Photography Special, a bumper-sized edition that shone a light back on the people behind the lens – from street shooter Cheryl Dunn and skateboard documentarian J. Grant Brittain, to photojournalists Guy Martin and Bryan Derballa – and explored how social media was making documentarians of us all.

This year we’re digging even deeper into the documentary form, asking bigger questions and championing more boundary-breaking work. Is photography really an objective medium, asks Time LightBox editor Olivier Laurent. Or is it inherently personal, embedding the photographer’s own perspective into every shot? This issue sets out to explore this timeless question, through deeply personal essays by photographers we admire.

Huck 46 – The Documentary Photography Special II, our annual celebration of the most powerful storytelling tool, features:

Smoke and Mirrors by Olivier Laurent: Meet the new breed of photographers blurring the line between fact and fiction, leading the way towards deeper truths.

Mary Ellen Mark on Henri Cartier Bresson: An exclusive piece by one legend on another.

Exclusive personal essays from photographers Joseph Szabo, Carolyn Drake, Brendan Hoffman, Jason Andrew, Lindsay Mackenzie, Ewen Spencer, Andrew McConnell, J.A. Mortram, Matt Eich, Shannon Jensen, Jonathan Mehring, David Maurice Smith, Harold Feinstein, Ying Ang, Tommaso Protti, Venetia Dearden, Krisanne Johnson.

Huck 46 – The Documentary Photography Special II is out September 8, 2014.
