THE ART OF SEEING 2
the best of reuters photography
The Art of Seeing offers a fascinating and visually stunning selection of pictures taken by Reuters photographers with the vision and imagination to capture extraordinary incidents or moments of beauty. This collection comprises a story with many threads: celebration, adversity, hope, triumph and humanity - and offers some of the most spectacular and significant images you will ever see.
The Art of Seeing showcases the two essential characteristics of a top photojournalist - a nose for a story and an eye for a photo.

My only irritation is one that applied to most books of this kind: why print an image across two pages if the composition is ruined by the 'split'. I'd rather have a smaller but intact image please.
In summary: if you buy this you'll not be disppointed.
What a book. Absolutely lovely. I want to cut the book up and put the pages on the wall for inspiration. The photographs absolutely do live up the title. Without a word of explanation the photographs (no, not every one, but a lot of them) state what a photograph is. How it takes elements from a scene and makes the whole more than the parts. If you want to take photographs, buy this book and drool.
It is as you would imagine, images of a powerful nature from the news photographers around the world. It is well laid out with information on each picture and dates / place information. Absolutely superb read.
One draw back is the quality of the full page and double page pictures. A good few of them aren't as good a quality as you would expect.
Not appropriate for very young kids.
The quality of the pictures leaves much to wish. The pictures are maybe "catchy", there's some pop culture, some politics but the cut, edition, ressolution etc for me are not enough. I think this book is an "ok" document about our times, but art is too big a word for pictures here. I would advice it to those who like gathering documents about different times but for those deeper soaked in photography I would advice spend their money on NG's books.
I love the cover picture, though! I think it's the best in the book
