The philosopher and psychologist William James once said “the greatest use of a life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.”
We believe that documentary photography can be that something, for the photographers making the images, those they photograph and the community at large. TheDocumentaryProjectFund was founded to enable photographers to do work that will outlast them and impact their communities in positive ways for years to come. Your donation to TheDPF keeps us going. If you believe that art can enlighten, instruct and be a force for change, please show your support right now by clicking on Donate to TheDPF.
