Product Description

Review

Its 365 images are a social history of 63 years of global change. --Metro, 29 November 2010

The perfect gift for anyone interested in the trajectory of photography over the past 60 years...Co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson memorably said the agency should reflect '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'. That, against all the odds in this digital age of image overload...remains the case. --The Observer, 12 December 2010

'The riches contained within the Magnum Archive have been shuffled and sliced afresh this year to produce A Year in Photography: Magnum Archive.' --The Times

'Photography books of the year: Best Compilation - it is the perfect gift for anyone interested in the trajectory of photography over the past 60 years.' --The Observer

Some photographs are iconic, some little known; they range from classic portraits to abstract images, cover almost 60 years and capture global communities. --Metro

Format: Hardcover
I expected this book to reflect one year from Magnum with all the photographs being taken in the last twelve months. Instead it is more a collection across the whole Magnum Archive with a blank page opposite each photo and hence it becomes something more like a rather expensive and bulky diary! Having not bought any books covering the Magnum Archive previously I do not regret the purchase and it is proving to be a worthwhile purchase but I strongly suspect that if you owned any other Magnum books you would regret this purchase finding it contained much of what you had already.

A quality publication in everything except its title. "365 excellent photographs with no descriptive text and around 365 nearly blank pages with good paper and beautiful binding", would probably be too long for a more accurate title. A Year in Photography: Magnum Archive

I was a little disappointed with this book as I was expecting a small write up against each photo explaining what had inspired the photo to be taken rather than just seeing the name of the photographer and the date it was taken.

I have been eyeing up this book at Waterstones for a very long time and decided to buy it from Amazon because of the cheaper price. It is a great and very inspiring book. Especially if you're undertaking the 365 project.

I bought this book as a birthday present for a friend who has had a camera for a year (a present for his previous birthday) to give him some inspiration. Every photograph in it is a gem with the title and details of the photograph/photographer printed at the bottom of the reverse of the page (the so called *blank* page some reviewers refer to??). It is a catalog of stunning photographs of many subject matters and something which *should* inspire anyone with an interest in photography from the amateur to professional. Buy it at the free delivery price you won't regret it.

Some amazing photos. Some very strange indeed. Some poor quality for a book on photgraphy.
Would have liked a small explanation of each photo instead of just name and date
