This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Available for the first time in a compact edition, this groundbreaking book presents a remarkable selection of contact sheets and ancillary material, revealing for the first time how the most celebrated Magnum photographers capture and edit the very best shots. Addressing key questions of photographic practice, the book illuminates the creative methods, strategies, and editing processes behind some of the world's most iconic images. Featured are 139 contact sheets from sixty nine photographers, as well as zoom in details, selected photographs, press cards, notebooks, and spreads from contemporary publications including Life magazine and Picture Post. Further insight into each contact sheet is provided by texts written by the photographers themselves or by experts chosen by the members' estates. Many of the acknowledged greats of photography are featured, including Henri Cartier Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, and Inge Morath, as well as such members of Magnum's latest generation as Jonas Bendiksen, Alessandra Sanguinetti, and Alec Soth. The contact sheets cover over seventy years of history, from Robert Capa's Normandy landings and the Paris riots of 1968 via Bruno Barbey, to images of Che Geuvara by Rene Burri, Malcolm X by Eve Arnold, and portraits of classic New Yorkers by Bruce Gilden.
