Exhibition Preview: Assignments 23

We hope you can join us from 6pm on Thursday 8th June for the exhibition preview of Assignments 23, 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.

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.

From filmmaker to photographer. Joann’s photojournalism career kick-started in January 2021, during the second year of the covid pandemic, after being acknowledged by The Daily Express and V&A who exhibited one of her images in the prestigious museum. What was initially a creative outlet during the pandemic, Joann soon began to transpose her skills from filmmaking to be utilised in photography, from researching stories to finding her own photographic style, particularly in portraiture. In 2022 Joann won the Journalists Charity Wales Media Awards ‘Photographer of the Year,’ Peoples Choice Award in the ‘Portrait’ category of the British Photography Awards and Winner of the BPPA Portrait category.
