Got this book as a present and I am really pleased with it. The photographs are of course good but that is not what makes the book excellent. The 'gold' is in the stories. Interesting, informing and thought provoking. If you just want to look at beautiful pictures then there are lots of books you can choose from but if you are really interested in learning and knowing more about photography then you won't find better than this book. Highly recommended for the thinking person.

This book is a fantastic investment. You can always pick it up and read for 10 or 15 minuits and find something new and interesting. It goes almost without saying that the photos are spectacular.

I have recently purchased this book an am really pleased with it. I'm a proffessional photographer and have been a follower of Magnum for many years. This book is perhaps the most insightfull look into the work of Magnum and also the individual photographers. There are 61 photographers that contribute and have an opportunity to discuss there own work, motivations and origins within photography. The images are excellently portrayed and edited but for me the written text that accompanies each section is what makes the book stand out from the many Magnum books available. By reading the book I know a lot more about how the best photographers approach each story and also what constitutes a good image. The book is huge, containing 512 pages so your certainly getting both quantity and quality for your money. If your after just one quintissential book about Magnum then this is it...the only slight downside to mention is that alot of the newer members of Magnum are not featured due to the 2004 edition of the book.

If your a photographer this is a must have book in your collection. Not only does it give you an insight into some of the world`s top image makers, but also gives heaps of inspirational ideas. A beautifully produced book, well worth every penny.

This is a fascinating book to look at (rather than read) It's the sort of book you dip into rather than read from page one forwards. Really, my only criticism is that it weighs a ton and, by virtue of its size and bulk it's impossible to read as you sit in an armchair. It would have been much better to divide it into two volumes and sell it as a boxed set.
It's still a remarkable piece of work.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for my girlfriend, a keen photographer, and the moment she opened the first page, she was instantly inspired. This is photography at its very best and whether or not you hold an interest, you cannot help but feel touched by some of the work on display within this books silky pages. The photographers on show have touched the hearts of millions, the quality is mind blowing, and it proves that pictures do actually say a thousand words. A deffinate book to treasure. Its only downfall is its weight!
