If we analyse both genres, on the surface we will find many similarities. Both center around the model of the candid frame. They are unpredictable and often the photographer will have to adapt their approach in order to get the story they are wanting to tell. They are a form of social documentary, portraying the current times, people and culture.

Once we go deeper the differences start to develop and we’re going to take a look at them.
