Reportage art - capturing stories
In the month that we mark World Refugee Day, I take a look in my regular Art & Soul blog for Skylark Galleries at capturing stories through reportage art.
It’s a type of visual journalism that includes courtroom and war artists, news reports and events like protests and concerts. And I take a side look at related urban and country sketching.
As a former journalist and broadcast news pr turned artist, reportage art is how I tell the stories of performers in venues and on the streets.
And you can discover in my blog how it's used by other artists in our friendly art collective - Helen Trevisiol, Ed Bucknall, Jo Hodgen and Kelly Stewart.
