The coffee table book Magnum Magnum showcases the best of Magnum Photos and celebrates the vision, imagination and genius of its photographers - from the recognized luminaries of the 20th century to the modern masters and rising stars of our time.
Since its founding in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David "Chim" Seymour, Magnum Photos - the legendary cooperative - has powerfully captured the peoples, cultures, events and issues of the time. Now, following its 75th anniversary, Magnum Photos and Thames & Hudson are joining forces to publish an updated and expanded edition of the original hit publication Magnum Magnum (2007), previously presented in three formats and selling more than 200,000 copies worldwide.
Organized by photographer, Magnum Magnum is based on the concept that made Magnum such a unique creative environment; a collaborative process in which each of the four founders edited the other's photographs. This book evokes the same creative spirit, with each photographer selecting and critiquing six key works by another of the agency's 87 photographers, along with a commentary explaining the rationale behind their choices.
This new edition adds the 25 photographers who have joined Magnum over the past 15 years. With more than 150 new photographs and more than 700 pages, this book is the definition of an updated classic.
