Here is the popular yet complete paperback edition of the hugely acclaimed Magnum Magnum, which was an instant sellout on first publication in 2007. It celebrates sixty years of the vision, imagination and brilliance of Magnum photographers in over 400 photographs by the acknowledged greats of photography in the 20th century and the rising stars of our time. Each photographer is represented by six of their works as chosen by, and including a critical text by, another member. Including biographies of the featured photographers, a history of Magnum Photos by Brigitte Lardinois and a bibliography of Magnum books, Magnum Magnum makes available to a wider audience one of the greatest photography anthologies of recent years - an essential book for anyone interested in photography or the world depicted by it.
'A magnificent venture ... grand in scale and content' - John Banville, Financial Times Magazine 'Brimming with photographic masterpieces ... some of the greatest pictures ever taken' - Sunday Times 'A fascinating collection of some of the most important reportage photography in modern times, and an essential tome' - What Digital Camera 'Beautifully presented ... a sturdily wieldy volume which feels as though it will easily withstand the repeated thumbings its contents deserve. The real triumph, though, is the format: each featured photographer is represented by a selection of their work ... chosen by one of their colleagues .... This book is an essential purchase. It's a must for anyone with any interest in photography; anyone lacking such an interest would surely soon develop one after glancing through its pages' - Oomska.co.uk
