Styles of documentary photography vary, as well. For example, wedding or event photography is a documentation, as photographers take pictures candidly to capture the moments that make the event special, and provide a thorough and beautiful overview through a series that represents the event as a whole. Likewise, sports can be documented through action shots that capture the movement of the game. Food photography as well can be a documentation, especially when capturing pictures of the preparation, during which the food is revealed via its most important aspect: its creator, the chef.

The artwork can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction.

It’s a compelling belief, and may just be true. History happens, and with it, memories, but photographers alone are able to capture it in frames.

3-dimensional art is not an acceptable medium in this competition.
