Description - Doing Documentary Work by Robert Coles

Child psychiatrist, Robert Coles, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Children in Crisis" series, offers a look into the nature of documentary work. Utilizing the documentaries of writers, photographers and others, Coles shows how their prose and pictures are influenced by the observers frame of reference - their social and educational background, personal morals and political beliefs. Through discussions with documentarians and insightful analysis of their work, complemented by black-and-white photographs, this book aims to provoke the reader into reconsidering how fine the line is between truth and fiction.
