Book Description 
On Assignment takes us onto a fishing boat in the North Atlantic in midwinter, into a community of African Jews in Ethiopia, or underground Virginia coal miners. Arthur Leipzig's assignments have led him from the streets of New York to the mountains of Central America. In each of these remarkable photographs, Leipzig captures decisive and dramatic images of the subject, but also goes beyond each assignment to reveal the hearts and souls of the people he has met.
