What is documentary photography?
Documentary photography is sort of like photojournalism. It's meant to tell a story.
It captures the details of life that are sometimes missed.
Documentary photography gets a chance to capture the real. The funny. The quirky. And sometimes the raw emotions of a moment.
It seeks to capture the relationships of the people in the photos.
It helps preserve the things you will forget.
It triggers memories that might be forgotten, because they seemed so small, but when you see the photos of them, they rush back in like a flood of emotion.
Documentary photography captures the beauty of every day.
It captures the real deep love between people, because it's not forced. It's not posed. It's FELT.
Documentary photography catches all those in between moments that you want so deeply to tuck away in your mind and heart and never let go of. Those times we say we'll never forget, but when we look back, they're so distant.
Documentary photography gets to go deeper.
