The Documentary and Visual Journalism Group


Who we are.

The Documentary and Visual Journalism Group (DVJ)  comprises a dynamic and diverse group of photographers,  both in the UK and across the world. They all share a common interest which is documentary, urban and street photography.

The DVJ welcomes photographers of all abilities to join in this fascinating and growing  genre of photography. Remember! you do not have to be a photojournalist or professional photographer to join the DVJ.  We support, encourage and welcome RPS members members from all regions of the Uk and wherever you live across the globe. 

We are developing a lively events programme around the country, ranging from informal Sunday Shoots to structured  workshops. If you live in an area that you feel would benefit by having an event why not help in getting one started?

Our e-magazine 'CANDID' is available to view, just click on the image below

Details of this years competition can be found on our Documentary Photographer of the Year page.

In addition we have other long term projects, such as documenting the everyday for The Archive for the Future.

The DVJ produces a quarterly e-bulletin, Candid, which includes interviews with leading documentary photographers, book recommendations and members’ images.

For 2015, we have an exciting programme of activities and projects based around the commemoration of the centenary of WWI, culminating in an exhibition and a symposium on war photography then and now.
