In the spirit of this issue, Modern Huntsman felt that whatever they chose needed to be by women, about women, and for women. The cover photo of the Alaska Salmon Sisters, taken by the insanely talented Dawn Heumann during her assignment to document their upbringing in remote Alaska, feels like the perfect representation of the themes they are exploring in this one. It was the very first image selected, and while they certainly considered others throughout the process, the initial instinct proved true.
Modern Huntsman's team of female editors, Katie Marchetti, Lindsey Davis, and Jess Johnson, under the direction of Guest Editor-in-Chief Nicole Qualtieri, have really made this issue something special. It’s chocked full of courageous, inspiring and challenging stories from women all over the world.
