    A2 PHOTOGRAPHY
  • What is Documentary?
    Photo-journalism – creating photographic records of events for publication in news media
    Social-documentary – creating a photographic essay on a particular social group or issue not necessarily for publication in news media – maybe for exhibition or a book. Not necessarily portraiture – can include still-life, landscape, travel and interiors.
    War photography – as photo-journalism but recording war – the action, the people, the hardware, the aftermath, the landscape. Intended for immediate publication in news media.
