Item description for Assignments: The Press Photographer's Year by Tony Mcgrath...

Assignments The Press Photographer's Year

From the aftermath of the Asian tsunami to the trial of Saddam Hussein, this book is a unique reflection of twelve months of international events as seen through the eyes of some of the world's finest news photographers.

The members of the British Press Photographers' Association (BPPA) have selected their best work from projects spanning the globe in order to revisit their definitive yearbook series. The result, edited down from over 10,000 submissions, by an independent jury of photographers and picture editors, is a remarkable and uncompromising photographic essay, and includes previously unseen images. Assignments: The Press Photographer's Year demonstrates once again that even in an age of rolling television news, internet and satellite communication, the traditional still image burns the keenest, fastest impression on the public conscience: the most effective way to show the world the world as it really is.

Exhibition: Lyttelton Circle Foyer of the National Theatre, South Bank, London, June 2006.

The British Press Photographers' Association (BPPA) was founded in 1984 by UK press photographers to promote and inspire the highest ethical, technical and creative standards within the profession and to raise awareness of their industry. Counting among its members many of the country's leading photographers, on assignment in every corner of the globe, the BPPA truly represents the broadest selection of newspaper, magazine and agency photographers in the UK today. Previous publications include an earlier series of Assignments yearbooks and Five Thousand Days.
