Mary F. Calvert is committed to using photography to affect meaningful social change and is known for producing work on underreported and neglected gender-based, human rights issues.

For the past eight years, Calvert has been focusing her journalistic attention on the relegation and abuse of women and men in the U.S. armed forces. This work made her a finalist in Feature Photography in the 2020 Pulitzer Prizes and has won numerous honors, including the World Press Photo Contest award and the Cliff Edom "New America Award." The work has been supported by grants from Getty Images, the Alexia Foundation, and the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund. Calvert was awarded the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award twice and is a 2017-2018 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in Photography.
