We ran a lot of photography stories this year. Some were shot by rising stars we’d just got to know, others were shot by old-timers who’ve been shooting for i-D for years. We published hundreds of user-submitted images via our My Month in a Photo series, alongside powerful fashion stories commissioned for the print magazine. For the last week of the year, we’ve picked out a few of our favourites. Here, enjoy our favourite photography stories to consider identity and belonging.
