American Reportage Launched

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

July 5, 2017

Announcing a collective of documentary photojournalists specializing in comprehensive storytelling of the American experience.

In recent years, magazines and newspapers have cut their budgets and reduced their staff sizes. Many publications no longer have the resources to provide comprehensive coverage of American culture and investigative reporting of key issues facing the nation, leaving a void in the national dialog.

Dedicated to storytelling that is important and critical to the country, American Reportage fills this gap. Members of the collective produce in-depth stories that amplify the voices of people and communities that may otherwise go unheard.

As independent photojournalists, members are committed to doing the groundwork that leads to rich, thoughtful, and engaging content. They embed themselves into stories to understand and convey the intricacies of complex issues.

Collaborating together and with publications that value this kind of work, American Reportage members deliver reporting that accurately captures the mood and fabric of the American experience and brings it to the forefront of the public’s consciousness.
