"Magnum Stories" explores how some of the world's greatest photographers take, edit and lay out pictures. Using the 'photo story' as a vehicle to explain their approach, the hook features work by 61 members of the prestigious Magnum photo agency. A vast range of photographers are included, from Magnum's founders - Robert Capa, George Rodger, David "Chim" Seymour and Henri Cartier-Bresson - to the second and third generations of members, including Eve Arnold, W. Eugene Smith, Rene Burri, Raymond Depardon, Steve McCurry, Martin Parr and Josef Koudelka, as well as the newest recruits of the last few years.
Each of the photographers is represented by a photo story of their choice, laid out to their specifications, and a text in their own voice that offers a rare insight into their individual thought processes and working practice. The chosen stories cover a wide range of subjects including the Vietnam War, Kosovo, Picasso, Malcolm X, bullfighting in Pamplona, Gandhi's funeral, Morocco and postwar Iraq. The book spans a variety of photographic genres such as war and documentary photography, photojournalism, social realism, portraiture, landscapes, fashion and news.
The photo story has been a key vehicle for photography since the early twentieth century. "Magnum Stories" explores the influences that have affected the photo story and how it has been utilized, published and adapted by key events and publications such as "Newsweek", "Time" and "Paris Match", which have helped define the genre. This book provides a unique and in-depth reflection on the course of photography during the second half of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, from the widespread purpose of photographers during the post-World War II years, to the individualistic range of practices and interests that constitute documentary photography today.
