24 photographers capture 24 hours
Each year 24 photographers document the first 24 hours of every New Year, each one tasked with capturing a single moment within their allotted hour.
The original 24 met while on a postgraduate photography course at Central Saint Martin's in London more than 10 years ago and this is the 11th year of the series which they hope will run for 24 years.
Although their various careers have all led them down different paths they reunite to continue towards their goal, though some new photographers have joined the project to replace any unable to contribute each year.
This year the work was curated by photographer Antonio Olmos who said: "I really enjoyed looking at and curating the work of the 24 photographers... The individual visions coalesce into making an amazing body of work."
Six prints from the project will be auctioned off in aid of Hope and Homes for Children and the work is on show at London's Soho Square until 22 March.
An evocative view of London's streets
Italian photographer Giacomo Brunelli's latest body of work focuses on the streets of London, rendering the landscape in atmospheric black and white.
The series was commissioned by The Photographers' Gallery and includes a number of London landmarks, but with each reduced to act as the backdrop to the moment that caught Brunelli's attention.
Faces of the Floods
The recent floods in the UK have affected about 6,500 homes, forcing many people to leave their properties and others to fight as best they can to try to keep the water out.
As the worst of the weather passed, photographer Charlie Clift headed to one of the areas affected to create Faces of the Floods, a project that he says "shows the incredible effort and solidarity among those tackling the difficulties in the Somerset Levels".
Trading to extinction
On 14 February, the UK government is hosting an international conference on the illegal trade in wildlife, at which it hopes to obtain high-level political commitment from governments around the world to fight the issue.
According to the government, the illegal wildlife industry is worth more than £6bn each year, and it is growing. Rhino horns can sell for up to £40,000 ($65,000) per kg, making it more expensive than gold. According to Cites - the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species - more than 22,000 elephants were slaughtered for their tusks in 2012.
Syrian refugees looking for a life in Lebanon
The number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon has now passed one million, according to a recent government estimate. Many have nowhere to go, few possessions and are struggling to survive. In some villages, near the border, the refugees now outnumber the Lebanese residents.
In December, photographer Ed Thompson travelled to Lebanon to photograph some of those displaced from their homes by the Syrian conflict.
Staying safe on the front line
Journalists and photographers working in hostile environments and war zones have always been at risk of death or injury, but for those covering recent conflicts the blurred, or sometimes non-existent, front lines mean it can be hard to calculate the risks involved. In many instances things can go wrong very quickly and adequate training is essential, both in terms of how to stay safe and how to treat those who have been wounded. Photographer Alison Baskerville looks at one way freelancers are trying to improve the situation.
Marielle van Uitert, a Dutch photojournalist, was one of many freelance contributors who nearly lost her life while covering the Syrian conflict in 2012.
Andy Gotts: Behind the actor's mask
Andy Gotts has been photographing celebrities for more than two decades, often in black and white, but always with imagination and an ability to bring out an aspect of the character of the sitter.
His most recent project, Behind the Mask, has seen him travelling the globe to photograph more than 100 actors and actresses who have won or been nominated for a Bafta (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award during the past 50 years.
Photographer Tom Wood's landscapes
A little more than a year ago I wrote about Tom Wood's 40-year photographic project which recorded the lives of the people of Liverpool and Merseyside between 1973 and the start of this century. Once again he has dug into his archive, this time to curate a collection of his little-known landscape work.
The pictures on show at the Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno span the past 40 years and were taken in the west of Ireland, Merseyside and north Wales.
Moments in time, 2013
Much has been written of the demise of news photography, killed off by the rise of the camera-enabled mobile phone in everyone's pocket. It's not a theory I subscribe to, but there is no denying the important role it plays in news.
A new BBC programme, Moments in Time, looks back at photographs that captured some of the big stories of the past year, and considers how snaps by amateurs now sit alongside those taken by press photographers.
Press Association photographers' best shots of 2013
As 2013 draws to a close, Milica Lamb, the Press Association's picture editor, picks a few of the best shots by the news agency's photographers, who have been on hand to record the events of the past 12 months and who provide a few thoughts on the making of the photo.
Select a set of your best news images from 2013? Sounds easy, but as PA's picture editor with an outstanding portfolio of pictures to choose from, where to begin? With a team of 34 photographers around the UK and Ireland producing an average of 600 news, sport and entertainment images on a daily basis, it's not an easy task.
