About the Author
The British Press Photographers Association provides its members with a voice to raise awareness and appreciation of the press photography industry. The membership is drawn from every part of the country, and represents the broadest selection of newspaper, magazine and agency photographers. Newspaper editor and publisher Harold Evans is one of the most inflential names in the British media and has long been a powerful spokesman for the role of photography in journalism. He was editor of the Sunday Times between 1967 and 1981, resigning a year after Rupert Murdoch acquired the paper, citing a breach of guarantees of editorial independence.

but for all the excellent timing and artistry involved it's the subject matter and the breathtaking sweep of human existance that makes this an essential purchase. politicians off guard, all sorts of oddballs just living their lives, people in other countries living lives a million light years from our own and most significantly, the truly awful day in day out misery and destruction we rain down on each other from one corner of this planet to the other. I say most significantly because for me its this area of human misery that most books of this type prefer to skim over or just ignore completely but not here. 2 men rowing over a flooded pakistani city, people starving, both voluntarily and without choice, war after war, 9/11 and those whose hollow eyes tell you they have long since departed.
its not all misery, not by a long chalk, but if you are going to truly appreciate what this astonishing book has to offer then be prepared to be left stunned by a lot of what it has to show.
well bound and presented with good quality glossy paper with a short but insightful summary of each picture.
this is life right now, unedited and in the raw, uneasy and high in impact, you will be left to meditate on what you see and read here long after you close the cover, when was the last time you could say that about a book you read?
A really fantastically interesting book that you will come back to more than once be assured!
