What is Documentary Photography?

If there’s one statement that can sum up this genre of photography, it’s that ‘Simplicity is beauty’. As a style of photography which portrays straightforward records of events, people and places, these documentations are often raw, organic and true to form – almost like a visual construction of an ethnographic survey. It seeks to convey a message about the world, to spotlight certain issues or simply to tell lesser known stories of communities and their cultures.
