Subscribe to ZEKE magazine and get the best of global documentary photography delivered to your door, and to your digital device, twice a year. Each issue presents outstanding photography from the Social Documentary Network on topics as diverse as the war in Syria, the European migration crisis, the Bangladesh garment industry, and other issues of global concern.


But ZEKE is more than a photography magazine. We collaborate with journalists who explore these issues in depth­—not only because it is important to see the details, but also to know the political and cultural background of global issues that require our attention and action.

SDN is taking the very best stories from our website and bringing them to life on paper. There is nothing like the experience of seeing documentary images large and beautifully printed in a high quality magazine that you can hold in your hands and appreciate for years to come.


ZEKE is doing what we all want and need — publishing great photography about
important global issues by both established and emerging photographers from
all corners of the world.
