A STALYBRIDGE-BASED photographer is doing his bit around the country by helping curate national exhibitions of the press’ best images.

Anthony Devlin

Anthony Devlin is one of the people putting together the Assignments event in conjunction with the British Press Photographers’ Association.

Oxo Tower Wharf was the first location where pictures from the cream of press photographers were put on display.

But that is not the end of it as it is heading to Stoke-on-Trent, with talks from some of the people behind the lens.

Assignments comes north to Staffordshire, where it will be at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke from Saturday, July 13 until Sunday, August 25.

At that venue, there will be talks on Friday, July 26 from 7pm until 8pm on Conflict and War, where two photojournalists will detail their experiences on the front line.

On Sunday, August 18 at 1pm, the topic will be Royalty, Celebrity and the Press.

Admission to the exhibition is free with opening hours of 10am-5pm from Monday to Saturday and 11am-4pm on Sunday.

Tickets for the royalty talk cost £15 but afternoon tea is included and must be booked in advance.
