Part of Photoblock this weekend is the BPPA – British Press Photographers’ Association’s exhibition ‘Assignments 2016’, which features the very best of British Press Photography over the last twelve months. This will also be on 14th-17th October at the Truman Brewery, in Brick Lane. You can find more details here.
Chris Eades, Chairman of The BPPA said “Thousands of words are written or spoken about the news each day – but it is still photography that has the power to really bring events home to you. If you think of any significant event in recent history it will be the photograph you remember. British press photography is some of the best in the world and we are really pleased to be able to host this exhibition where the public will get a chance to see how powerful a good press photograph can be”.
