With the subject of documentary currently at the forefront of contemporary visual art and photography looming large as the medium of choice for practitioners, it seems an appropriate time to take stock of some of the most apposite work energizing and redefining the documentary mode. The fourteen artists - chosen from a shortlist nominated by over sixty of the world's leading authorities on contemporary photography - represent a broad spectrum of pictorial, aesthetic and conceptual interests.
