Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magnum Stories (Hardcover)
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.

Thank you for this fantastic review, I am torn between this book and the magnum by magnum book. I was wondering if you owned the second book and could offer a recommendation. Thank you.
