Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually’ Henri Cartier-Bresson, co-founder of MAGNUM. Magnum Photos was founded in 1947 in the aftermath of World War II when photojournalism was booming. Its four founders were none other than Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David Seymour who, aware of the power of the photographic medium to report on world events, wanted to ensure photographers maintained control over the rights to their images. This incredible true story will take you to the four corners of the earth to relive the upheavals of the 20th century through the lenses of the greatest photographers the world has ever seen. The book contains 190 pages of graphic storytelling, with photographs, and a 40-page file on the photographers, past and present, of the Magnum agency.
