While shooting on a Boston rooftop on a sunny winter evening, Mirisola asked models Delia and Julia to get close to catch the light in their eyes.

Jones’s series about six women in their 20s living together is a counter to the “misinformed” and “distorted” depictions of womanhood. Shot off-campus by Syracuse University, this image was taken before they parted ways for winter break.

This portrait, taken in London, is from a series for which Xu photographed seven longtime friends in seven different countries.

Lu Fran Motel, from the series “Ebb Tide,” which is set in the small shore towns of the Wildwoods in New Jersey. Haughey says this motel is a favorite of his: “It encompasses and effortlessly retains the aesthetic, optimism and playfulness of the postwar era better than any other.”

From the series “Living on the Line of Fire,” about the people who live in the front line of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine around the separatist city of Donetsk. This table belongs to a woman, Nelli, a former farmer who stayed in her village. Under the flowers lies a letter detailing what she wants to do when the war is over.

“A Sort of Poise” from the series “Cygnets,” which examines moments where innocence, in its imaginative naiveté, becomes increasingly at odds with a growing self-awareness. This image, Magowan says, captures the “performance” of “what refined and well-behaved little girls ought to look like.”

Cadet Dustin Sacchetti watches as a fellow cadet asks for directions on Fort Dix Army Base to the site of their fall field training exercise (FTX). Cadets from Fordham University’s ROTC program conduct practical training exercises once a semester, and participating in FTX is a rite of passage for many.

A portrait from “The Monolith Myth,” which began as an open call on social media, aiming to “dismantle the stereotype of the single Black experience” by emphasizing the individuality of each subject.
