We define New Documentary as photography that uses reality as a canvas to create explicitly subjective perspectives of images. This can result in an abstraction from reality, but can also facilitate a deeper look into the fabric of that same reality. One could say that New Documentary is the poetic aspect of ‘regular documentary photography’, traditionally seen in news and photo journalism.
Clearly things are not always black and white as scientists or philosophers would hope. But then again, photography is not a science. It’s a continuously evolving art.
