9 JUNE - 22 JULY

Ffotogallery is pleased to present - for the first time in Wales - Assignments 23, the British Press Photographers’ Association’s annual exhibition celebrating the best of press photography from its members.

This year’s exhibition covers stories from July 2021 through to the Spring of 2023 and features everything from sports and entertainment to politics and protests with royals, celebrities, and global events as seen through the eyes of the association’s photographers.

We hope you can join us from 6pm on Thursday 8th June for the exhibition preview, where we will also be joined by multi-award winning photographer and filmmaker Joann Randles who will be sharing a presentation of her work from 7.45pm. Free admission - open to all. Refreshments provided.
