Reportager exists in order to support, initiate,
and showcase projects involving drawing as reportage, visual journalism,
documentary drawing and illustration as visual essay. We are interested
in projects, which use the made image to interrogate a diverse range
of themes. The website works as an editorial space for the dissemination
of good practice in this area.
There are good examples of image-makers acting as visual journalists,
proactively making work that interests them, documenting either impartially
or subjectively on a wide range of issues and locations. We aim to
present the very best and innovative examples of visual reportage
from around the world and will continue to add new material as it
Reportager is dedicated to the promotion and showcasing of projects
involving reportage and visual journalism and will attempt to provide
a platform for artists working in this area. We are especially interested
in projects that are issue based or tell a story in pictures, but
are open to suggestion - including the use of new and emerging technologies.
We encourage submissions from practising artists both nationally and
internationally who specialise in this area. Any information or news
related to the field or community is welcomed.
