HUCK 41 delves into the doc photo world to surprise your eyes with the most arresting images in the game.

We’re all documentarians now. But are we all photographers?

For seven years, HUCK has had the privilege of working with the most talented names in documentary photography to build a visual language that champions authenticity — whether we’re shooting cover stars like Dave Eggers or Nas, or documenting emerging subcultures blowing up the underground. Now the time has come to celebrate the people behind the lens.

HUCK 41: THE DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY SPECIAL features:

• Personal photo essays from: Cheryl Dunn, J. Grant Brittain, Guy Martin, Bryan Derballa, JM Lopez, Paul Calver, Laura Pannack, Charlie Shoemaker, Mustafah Abdulaziz, Elizabeth Dalziel, Shane McCauley, Spencer Murphy, Mike Belleme, Joni Sternbach, Alex Welsh, Alana Paterson, James Bowden and more…

PLUS: A three-part literary insert featuring:

• Olivier Laurent: The deputy editor of the British Journal of Photography explores how social media is empowering documentarians to bring down the wall between their audience and their work.

• Geoff Dyer: The culture pundit expands on The Ongoing Moment — an acclaimed essay on the history of photography — and makes it relevant to a generation obsessed with documenting their own lives.

• J. Malcolm Garcia: An exclusive piece of reportage from Kabul.
