For this matter I have selected 12 projects, from 13 photographers, who use particular approaches towards their topic and subjects and are distinctive in their visual language and presentation formats. Therefore I have differentiated four strategies among which we can find some overlaps: the investigative strategy, the activist strategy, the participatory strategy, and the digital strategy.
By using these four categories I hope to provide a useful insight into the way these photographers deal with the production, conceptualization and dissemination of their content. I would argue that all these strategies fall within the broad domain of documentary photography; however, the selected artists question, through the use of a certain strategy, the documentary notion of truthfulness that seems to be relentlessly inscribed in this domain. Most of the artists are trained in photojournalism but have encountered the shortcomings of the practice during their careers.
