Public is invited to the opening reception for Documentary Photography Now curated by Kevin C. Downs. This group of 23 photographers from across the globe exemplify what documentary photography is. First and foremost documentary photography is not isolated images, however good (beautiful, gripping, well conceived?), but stories, series, a narrative, some form of continuity which never manages to tell the whole thing (what could???) but to involve us – even for a short moment – into someone else’s life. Documentary photography, just like ethnology with which it shares many points, tells us — however briefly — that there is a world outside and beyond us.
