makes for more natural looks. The key words to remember here is natural behavior, emotions, innocence and vulnerability. With that in mind, you can get great and powerful documentary photos of children.
And finally, it is also important to remember that journalism is never 100% objective. And neither is photojournalism and documentary photography. A photo only shows one angle of “the complete picture”. As documentary photographers, we have the power to choose which side of the story we want to show. But we also have a duty not to distort the facts. This is where a photo series can be a good idea. A photo series can not only capture the strong emotions, but can show the variety and diversity of a certain topic, be it children or any other theme.
