This week’s photo stories highlight work from women photographers throughout history. We lead with a fascinating interview with art journalist Charlotte Jansen about her new book on women in contemporary photography, followed by a profile of Chicanx photographer Devyn Galindo and her celebration of culture, community, and heritage. Additionally, the National Gallery of Art's curator of 19th-century photographs, Diane Waggoner, shares how she's revising the history of photography to include the work of early women image-makers.

Elsewhere on the internet, work from photographers Christopher Herwig and Ezra Stoller render everyday architecture as stoic monuments on film, Richard Misrach takes us to the first-ever Burning Man festival, and Gabriella Demczuk captures the heartbreaking effects of rising sea levels on the environment in her poignant salt prints.
