I was disappointed with this book. Although it started well, after a couple of chapters it contained many URL links to online sites that no longer existed. The points made by the author were then not backed up and the book contained descriptions of images that the viewer was unable to see. It would have been better if the author had sought permission to use the images and inserted them into her book.

Let me start off by saying yes, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. The author offers an intelligent, engaging and, most importantly, well informed guide through the complexities of how to tell a story with photos. Deft writing and carefully devised exercises will raise your awareness and skill without moving too quickly.

It is, quite simply, a guide to creating a photo essay designed for photographers with some prior knowledge of their kit and photography in general. As well as a historical overview of the photo essay, there are examples drawn from the author's own work which are explained, often with a touch of personal anecdote, alongside the more technical observations. It's a must read, as far as I'm concerned!

Disappointing, dis-organised twaddle. (In addition none of the URLs actually work!).

This book complements my purchase of another book of surreal photography. I am enjoying it and working through it in my own different way
