  11. 11. Definitions: Documentary photography usually refers to a popular form of photography used to chronicle significant and historical events. It is typically covered in professional photojournalism, but it may also be an amateur, artistic, or academic pursuit. The photographer attempts to produce truthful, objective, and usually candid photography of a particular subject, most often pictures of people.
  12. 12. LARRY CLARK Lawrence Donald "Larry" Clark (born January 19, 1943) is an American film director, photographer, writer and film producer who is best known for the movie Kids and his photography book Tulsa. His most common subject is youth who casually engage in illegal drug use, underage sex and violence, and who are part of a subculture (such as surfing, punk rock or skateboarding).
  13. 13. RICHARD BILLINGHAM Richard Billingham (born 25 September 1970) is an English photographer and artist who is best known for his book Ray's A Laugh which documents the life of his alcoholic father Ray and obese, heavily tattooed, mother Liz.
  14. 14. FAY GODWIN Fay Godwin (17 February 1931 – 27 May 2005) was a noted British photographer, most widely known for her black-and-white landscapes of the British countryside and coast. Godwin was less active in her final years; in a December 2004 interview for Practical Photography, she blamed "the NHS. They ruined my life by using some drugs with adverse affects that wrecked my heart. The result is that I haven’t the energy to walk very far.”
  15. 15. MARY ELLEN MARK Mary Ellen Mark (born March 20, 1940) is an American photographer known for her photojournalism, her portraiture, and her advertising photography. She has had 16 collections of her work published and has been exhibited at galleries and museums worldwide. She has received numerous accolades, including three Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards and three fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
  16. 16. MARTIN PARR Martin Parr (born 23 May 1952 in Epsom, Surrey) is a British documentary photographer, photojournalist and collector. He is known for his photographic projects that take a critical look at modern society, specifically consumerism, foreign travel and tourism, motoring, family and relationships, and food.
  17. 17. HARRY GRUYAERT Harry Gruyaert (born in Belgium in 1941) began his career as a Director of Photography in television production, but by the early 1970s he had moved over to still photography. He picked up editorial assignments from National Geographic, Fortune and Vogue, among others, and his total immersion in the colour and landscapes of Morocco earned him the 1976 Kodak Prize.
