There is no precise definition or meaning of the term documentary photography since it is really an umbrella term for a variety of camerawork. However, in order to distinguish it from other forms of art photography, we can say that "documentary photography" is a type of sharp-focus photography that captures a moment of reality, in order to convey a meaningful message about what is happening in the world. It typically focuses on an ongoing issue (or story) which it relates through a series of photographs.
This class is strongly oriented toward making personal choices (distinctions) about the various forms of documentary photography and to complete a documentary project.
