Founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Magnum Photos is the iconic international photographic cooperative whose members have captured the major historical events of their times, as well as private and intimate moments. A year s worth of these images is offered in this visually stunning book that features full page reproductions organised to reflect what Cartier-Bresson himself declared 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. Nearly 70 photographers are represented with five to six images each, and the current Magnum members have selected the photographs that they consider to best represent their own output. Running more than 700 pages, this book includes images that make history both individual and universal.
