How a sequence of photos can be more than the sum of its parts. Todays photographers approach their craft in a multitude of ways, and with so many millions of people at it, theres a sizeable support group for every interest, from iPhoneography to expressive, humanitarian, or collaborative photography. Narrative is one such popular area, and there is a new interest in making coherent photo stories. Using Michaels own work, and that of many other great photographers, this unique book will show how classic photo stories are shot and edited, and give aspiring photojournalists and hobbyists alike a wealth of ideas to unlock the potential of their most powerful storytelling tool: their camera.

About Michael Freeman

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career. Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographershas been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.
