Reportage Photography and Documentary Photographer
Featuring my UK and international reportage photography and work as a documentary photographer. There's a written narrative or editorial provided for each gallery too.
Reportage and documentary photography are similar genres. In fact, at first glance, they can appear to be identical. That's because both genres:
1. Use the art of photography for storytelling.
2. Convey stories about people.
3. Might provide a written narrative or editorial to accompany the images (where appropriate).
What is the Difference?
We've established the similarities. So what is the difference between documentary and reportage photography?
Reportage vs Documentary Photography
The difference is actually quite distinct. Let me explain:
Reportage photography tells a story about a single event.
For example: Weddings, festivals, parties or protest demonstrations.
Whereas documentary photography tells a story about a topic.
For example: Social issues, cultures, charities or corporate sectors.
You'll find examples of both genres in my portfolio below.
