What We Do
In this fast paced world, one where we learn of current events seconds after they occur and the evening news seems quaint, there is still a place for the photograph. Still photographers can force us to reconsider our biases and make us think about life outside our own small worlds.
TheDocumentaryProjectFund was founded in 2012 as a 501(c)(3) to help make sure that photographers who want to tell the stories of their communities will be able to do so. We provide project support grants to photographers who have a community focus and a good story to tell.
Documentary photography demands a level of commitment that is very difficult for a photographer who wants to do the work, but still needs to make a living. Our project support will help insure that important projects get completed. And then, we will help get that work out to as wide an audience as possible.
