The Reuters News Pictures Service was created in 1985 and has since become the world's leading provider of photographic images. The Art of Seeing offers a fascinating selection of news pictures taken by Reuters photographers who have had the vision and ability to see and capture extraordinary incidents. The collection comprises a story with many threads. The book sets each photograph in context, outlining the circumstances behind the image: how the photographers came to witness these events and how they managed to document them. It showcases the two essential characteristics of the top photojournalist - a nose for a story and an eye for a photo.
