About us

Our vision

Documentary is about developing a narrative or story using images. Our Documentary Group members have a common interest in documentary, urban and street, photography. The group offers a lively events programme, a quarterly e-journal and the opportunity to participate in other photographic initiatives.

Documentary photography communicates a clear narrative through visual literacy. It can be applied to the photographic documentation of social, cultural, historical and political events.

Documentary photographers’ work always has an intent; whether that is to represent daily life, explore a specific subject, deepen our thinking, or influence our opinions.

You can read our Group's Plans (to align with the RPS Strategy) here (comments welcome)

The Documentary Group is run by RPS members who volunteer their time. If you can help in any capacity, please email Mark at to let him know.
