MAPgroup is a non-profit association of approximately forty photographers who share a passion for, and commitment to, high quality, independent documentary photography. Our members range from emerging photographers to well-established and experienced professionals, many of whom are recipients of national and international awards. We use our various backgrounds and individual perspectives to explore diverse subjects. Through our photographs, we tell stories that might not otherwise be told by the mainstream media. And we produce enduring visual archives that will be of value to future generations, whether in the form of books, exhibitions, projections or paste ups.
