Gary Embury, Senior Lecturer of Illustration at the University of the Best of England in Bristol, is the editor and founder of Reportager. “The site is dedicated to the promotion and showcasing of projects involving reportage and visual journalism and will attempt to provide a platform for artists working in this area,” he says. “We are especially interested in projects that are issue based or tell a story in pictures, but are open to suggestion – including the use of new and emerging technologies.”

Reportager exists in order to support, initiate, and showcase projects involving drawing as reportage, visual journalism, documentary drawing and illustration as visual essay. We are interested in projects, which use the made image to interrogate a diverse range of themes. The website works as an editorial space for the dissemination of good practice in this area. Reportager encourages submissions from practicing visual journalists. Any information or news related to the field or community is welcomed.

His big news: “I’m happy to announce that Sue Coe will be giving me work for the projects page and will also be a member in order to help me make the journal less polite! (her words).”
