Assignments is an illustrative book of works from Press Photographers in 2005. Laid out like a newspaper, it starts with hard hitting news, moving onto politics and current affairs and finishes with sport.
It seems to be an attempt to make the viewer aware of what the press have to go through to get the image. The foreword spends three pages talking about how the art of press photography is disappearing and that's why the book was created.
The images are well presented, very good quality and have great colour. To add impact, they've put some descriptions on the page before, which can be confusing.
Spelling mistakes are present, I found three on page 115 alone.
The book is paper back but well made and will make a great addition to the coffee table or business waiting area.
