"The World's Top Photographers: Photojournalism" presents an awe-inspiring showcase of the very best in era-defining photographs from around the world. Not only is it a beautiful and thought-provoking collection, but it also provides a compelling record of some of the key moments in recent world history. Although there are many single images that encapsulate an event, the photojournalists who go to such lengths to capture the shot often remain under the radar. The latest in the successful "World's Top Photographers" series pays homage to the portfolios of the world's leading photojournalists, celebrating work that is by turns gritty, provocative, beautiful and often shocking. All this is combined with incisive interviews with the photographers, revealing the stories behind each individual shot and providing greater insight into the human stories behind them. From battlefields and civil unrest to the highest achievements of human endeavour, "Photojournalism" brings together a collection of current events that have defined our times.
