Andrew Lever scours the world looking to capture the essence of an environment or subject. His piece [MANCHESTER TWINS] (https://www.riseart.com/art/63451/manchester-united-twins-by-andrew-lever) (2011) does just that through image’s the playful composition and posing. We love the authenticity found in Lever’s documentary photography and believe his work would be a beautiful accent to any space.
Much of Pedro Correa work is concerned with documenting the ambience of space. Correa’s photographs are particularly interested in the binary of indoor/outdoor. Interior spaces are haunted by exterior objects; a hovering taxi cab or the atmospheric condensation left by a rainy afternoon.
Documentary photography is a form of photography that chronicles historical events, timely environments or simply the reality of everyday life. For as long as photography has existed as an artistic medium, documentary photography has almost always been practiced. Early historical events like the dissolution of Crystal Palace in 1854 were recorded by British photographer Philip Delamotte. However documentary photography can also ask its audience to re-evaluate the artistic value within familiar scenes.
