brings together the best work, celebrating the vision, imagination, and brilliance of Magnum photographers, both the acknowledged greats of photography in the twentieth century-among them, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Eve Arnold, Marc Riboud, and Werner Bischof-and the modern masters and rising
stars of our time, such as Martin Parr, Susan Meiselas, Alex Webb, and Donovan Wylie. Organized by photographer, the book harks back to the agency's earlier days and the spirit that made it such a unique and creative environment
, one in which each of the four founding members picture-edited the others' photographs. Here a current Magnum photographer has selected and critiqued six key works by a Magnum cohort, with a commentary explaining the rationale behind the choice. This new paperback
edition provides a permanent record of iconic images from the last sixty years and an insight, as seen through the critical eyes and minds of Magnum photographers, into what makes a memorable photograph. 413 color illustrations.
