Huck celebrates the stories of 'the people behind the lens' in its annual exhibition

To mark its second documentary photography special issue, Huck magazine is holding an exhibition of images by some of today’s most talented photojournalists.

Personal Truths is on show in east London from today (16 September) until 26 September, and includes work by photographers Guy Martin, Andrew McConnell, Matt Eich and Shannon Jensen, among others.

The exhibition, which is part of the The Shoreditch Design Triangle, ponders the nature of documentary photography, and asks if it can ever be truly objective, or whether “all photography is a carefully framed, personalised version of the truth”.

Championing the featured photographers’ personal perspectives by sharing the story behind the body of work that has had the greatest impact on their life, the exhibition seeks to “cut through the silence that often surrounds documentary photography… towards a deeper, more powerful truth”.

Personal Truths is at 71a Leonard Street, London,  EC2A 4QS, until 26 September. There is a private view tonight (Tuesday 16 September), from 6-8pm. Please RSVP by clicking here.
