​Documentary photographers are increasingly expanding the way they create photographic projects by focusing on the social and relational aspects of picture making. While a focus on expanded structures of authorship is an exciting approach in an industry preoccupied with the idea of the ‘special seer,’ collaborative and participatory methodologies don’t necessarily facilitate participant autonomy over representation. This discussion addresses how this expanded practice of photo-making may be realised in ways that genuinely attempt co-authorship.
