After looking at some of the prints I have strong urge to go out and try new ideas. Truly inspiring and eye opening book. You can learn from it, you can use it as source of new ideas or just admire the 'photographic eye' of a few carefully chosen Hungarians.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book concentrates on just five photographers who, from the mid-20s onwards, played a very major role in photography. All were emigres, moving to either Paris, Berlin, London or New York and sometimes two or more of them in turn at different stages of their working lives. Several worked with or were members of photo agencies such as Magnum, which itself attracted some of the most respected photographers from the 1930s onwards and continues doing so. They have provided photographers to just about every major event world-wide, be it war, disaster or some important news story. The five listed are some of the most prestigious of all time and their influence belies their small number.

Several were subject to religious or political persecution and employed pseudonyms to hide their true identity and retained those identities for the remainder of their lives. Each was substantially different in their styles although some shared similarities. Between them they covered photo-reportage and photo-journalism, war (Capa) and fashion and celebrity (Munkasci). All five achieved fame and respect during their lifetimes, and their work and styles influenced a great many others although Munkasci had the misfortune to have been forgotten after achieving a position of stature and died in extreme poverty and quite forgotten.

Brassai and Capa are well represented in books of their work, Kertesz and Mohology-Nagy somewhat less, and Munkasci least of all. I have some books for two of the five and examples of a few images by the others in more general books and this book offers an opportunity to fill some of the obvious gaps.

I was fortunate enough to see this exhibition in July of this year and it was truly amazing to see these photographs bought together and shown here in England. The book is just as luxurious. Beautifully written and presented it is something that will remain with you forever.

Excellent service, hence the five stars.
Pity about the book, which is very disappointing. Just as well I didn't buy it at the RRP.
