Documentary Project Complete

Documentary Photography – is a witness and social record of history past and present and everyday life. By the beginning of the twentieth century, photography was well on its way to becoming the visual language it is today, with its candid approach and become a vehicle for democratic communication.

Photographers used its growing influence to expose society’s dark secrets and triumphs.

During this period the tradition of documentary photography was also reinvented by artists who began to see the camera as a tool for social change, using it to shed light on injustice, inequality and the sidelined aspects of society known as ‘social documentary photography’. This can be seen in the work of Nan Goldin, Corrine Day and Richard Billingham.
