Get Camera Roll photos to a Custom Collection View

I have an Custom Collection View with Cells. Here is my CollectionView code.

- (UICollectionViewCell *)collectionView:(UICollectionView *)cv cellForItemAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath;
    Cell *cell = [cv dequeueReusableCellWithReuseIdentifier:@"MY_CELL" forIndexPath:indexPath];

    return cell;

I want to get images from Camera Roll & display in these cells. How can I get Camera Roll images to view in this Cell? Should I use an array to store names of the images & then show them in the Cell?
Can anyone please give me a solution with a code.

    You can get the Albums and Photo/video assets using <AssetsLibrary/AssetsLibrary.h> framework :

       library = [[ALAssetsLibrary alloc] init];
    ALAssetsLibraryGroupsEnumerationResultsBlock listGroupBlock = ^(ALAssetsGroup *group, BOOL *stop) {
            if (group)
                [_albumsArray addObject:group];
            } else {
                [self.tableView performSelectorOnMainThread:@selector(reloadData) withObject:nil waitUntilDone:NO];
       [library enumerateGroupsWithTypes:ALAssetsGroupAll usingBlock:listGroupBlock failureBlock:failureBlock]

    While selecting album you will get photos/video by below method

        ALAssetsGroupEnumerationResultsBlock assetsEnumerationBlock = ^(ALAsset * result, NSUInteger index, BOOL *stop) {
            if (result)
                [self.tableView reloadData];
        [_assetGroup setAssetsFilter:[ALAssetsFilter allAssets]];
        [_assetGroup enumerateAssetsUsingBlock:assetsEnumerationBlock];
