World Press Photo. 16.

The change in frames here is interesting compared to the simple lay outs of the other books I have looked at. Bringing you in to a strong frame, that has a bold palette and an intriguing subject matter, suggests the rest of the images will attract the viewer. To my surprise the second photograph is from a completely different perspective. Whilst the first image is from below, making the subject a hierarchy to the photographer, the next one is taken from above, possibly from a drone or plane, and the contrast between the blue and monotone brown frame. Then the photographer brings us to the people in the story, again a drastic subject change. The image quality doesn’t drop although the subject changes so much, and the lay out really complements the images. Keeping them on separate spreads allows you to concentrate on them all without becoming overwhelmed.
