Publisher's Description

It’s no surprise that some of the world’s finest photographers have worked in and around a bicycle race at some point in their careers. Cycling provides the perfect subject for reportage, social documentary and street photography because it happens in real time and real life.

It isn’t a traditional stadium or circuit sport: the action happens on the street outside your house, in city centres where people live or in the mountains where people go to escape. The accessibility of cycling and photography means they share interesting parallels, culturally and historically. The Magnum archive contains work that is exceptional on both counts.

Thematic chapters each feature one ‘story’ of an iconic moment, event or scene: the Tour de France, track racing in the velodrome, winter training and the revelry of the fans and crowds. Images are by a variety of iconic photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Guy Le Querrec and Harry Gruyaert.

Publisher's Description

The Magnum Photos archive—a collection of more than 200,000 photographs by some of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries’ greatest image makers—is the most comprehensive accumulation of prints made by the distinguished photo cooperative. Consistently and with striking artistry, Magnum’s photographers have done more than simply document the far reaches of the globe; they have helped shape generations’ understanding of the world around them. While many of its photographs have been widely published, until now no one has examined the Magnum archive itself. In Reading Magnum, experts from several fields investigate this visual archive, now residing at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, to discover how a select, influential group of visual authors has used the camera for an ambitious project of cultural interpretation and social commentary.

>The chapters in Reading Magnum are devoted to themes generated by a close reading of the archive—war and conflict, portraiture, geography, cultural life, social relations, and globalization. These themes are further developed by evocative portfolios of images, which suggest something of the depth and range of the photo agency, and by tracing the trajectory of several iconic images from annotated press print to distribution to eventual publication. Volume editor Steven Hoelscher provides an overview of the Magnum enterprise, and Alison Nordström offers an appreciation of the Magnum archive as a material record of information about the making and disseminating of photographs that is being lost as images on paper are replaced by images on screen. As a whole, the book’s unique reading of the Magnum archive reveals patterns of intention, aesthetic vision, and political perspective that become legible only by viewing both the physical objects and the recorded images that constitute this remarkable collection.

Picture of Magnum Manifesto

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

In this landmark photography publication and accompanying exhibition, Clément Chéroux demonstrates how Magnum Photos owes its pre-eminence to the ability of its photographers to encompass and navigate the points between photography as art object and photography as documentary evidence. A Magnum photograph can be expressive and bear witness at the same time.

Magnum Manifesto is organized into three main parts:

  • Part 1 (1947–1968) views the Magnum archive through a humanist lens, focusing on post-war ideals of commonality and utopianism. 
  • Part 2 (1969–1989) shows a world fragmenting, with a focus on subcultures, minorities and outsiders. 
  • Part 3 (1990–present day) charts the ways in which Magnum photographers have captured – and continue to capture – a world in flux and under threat.

Featuring both group and individual projects, the book includes contact sheets, notebooks, magazine spreads and other previously unseen material to accompany the photographs. Complete with extensive texts by Clément Chéroux and photographic historian Clara Bouveresse, 'Magnum Manifesto' is an essential purchase for anyone seeking to understand the very best in photography.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

Magnum Analog Recovery takes readers along an unusual route through the history of Magnum's first 30 years from Robert Capa's D-Day (1944) to Telex Iran by Gilles Peress (1979) : the range comprises 231 prints of that period from the Magnum Analog Recovery archive. This path - neither academic nor official - leads us through the mysteries at the heart of the Magnum cooperative. It is a sensitive journey through the upheavals of time.
Reproduced in a file reminiscent of the archive boxes from which they came, these iconic 20th-century photographs are to be found side by side with numerous unpublished images by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Eve Arnold, René Burri, Elliott Erwitt, Alex Webb and Gilles Peress.

Texts and quotations from the photographers (notes, extracts from correspondence of recorded conversations) punctuate the sequence and call to mind the approaches to photography to be found at the heart of Magnum, approaches that can sometimes be contradictory.

Picture of Framing Community: Magnum Photos, 1947 – Present

Publisher's Description

Founded in 1947 on the shared belief in humanist values, the Magnum photo agency has mostly focused on a transient world in times of unrest, collapsing social structures and polarising politics. This volume is being published to mark the 70th anniversary of the agency. A careful selection of images from this cooperative photo agency sheds new light on Magnum according to one important theme: community.

Community is marked by diversity, conflicts and ruptures, and yet we cling to the sometimes nostalgic-seeming idea of the harmonious coexistence of man. This volume celebrates this history with over 100 photographs from Magnum taken over the past 70 years. It features pictures of dramatic events of world history to quiet, private insights into our daily lives. The works in this volume prove the long-lasting power of Magnum, showing the empathy and engagement of photographers as they framed distant and unfamiliar communities.

With photographs by David Seymour, Josef Koudelka, Susan Meiselas, René Burri, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Carl De Keyzer, Alec Soth, Bruce Davidson, Paul Fusco, Larry Towell, Thomas Hoepker, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jim Goldberg, Alex Webb, Bieke Depoorter, Peter van Agtmael, Bruno Barbey.

Picture of  Eve Arnold: Magnum Legacy

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

This first volume in a major new series of illustrated biographies of Magnum photographers traces the life and achievements of Eve Arnold, who captured an incredible array of subjects with remarkable clarity and compassion.

Eve Arnold (1912–2012) was born to a poor immigrant family in Philadelphia and became a photographer by chance. In 1950 Arnold was a 38-year-old Long Island housewife when she enrolled in a six-week photography course that led to her groundbreaking photo essay on black fashion models in Harlem. She went on to become the first woman to join Magnum Photos and, eventually, one of the most accomplished photojournalists of her time. Filled with reproductions of Arnold’s acclaimed photographs, shot in both color and black and-white, as well as previously unseen archival images, this biography relates Arnold’s bold images to the fascinating story of their making. Renowned for her intimate portraits of figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Malcolm X, and Queen Elizabeth, Arnold was equally comfortable documenting the lives of the poor and dispossessed. “I don’t see anybody as either ordinary or extraordinary. I see them simply as people in front of my lens.” To her images of migrant workers, disabled veterans, and protesters for civil rights in the US and against apartheid in South Africa, she brought an unflinching eye and a strong sense of social justice. This highly engrossing narrative tells a compelling story of an intrepid artist whose life’s purpose was to report on the lives of others.

139 contact sheets, representing 69 photographers, are featured, as well as zoom-in details, selected photographs, press cards, notebooks and spreads from contemporary publications, including Life magazine and Picture Post.

Picture of Euro Visions: The New Europeans by Ten "Magnum" Photographers

This project originated as a proposal from Magnum Photos to present to the Musee National d'Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, in Paris, a photographic assignment on the theme of the "new Europeans," namely, the ten countries that joined the European Union on May 1, 2004 Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia. Ten Magnum photographers each chose to explore one of these countries, all with personal reasons and very personal approaches. The rules laid out were simple: contrary to the illusionary and vain "portrait" of a country typical to this kind of short-term assignment, each photographer was asked to give an account of his or her specific experience. In addition to photography, their means of exploration could also include film, video, written notes, oral commentaries and other mediums

Publisher's Description

By documenting the everyday workings of the city, Magnums photographers capture the essence of Parisian life. Their photographs show the city as it lives and breathesfrom fashion shows to underground jazz clubs, from the bustling metro to outdoor cafés, and from the Art Deco Fouquets hotel to the working class Goutte dOr neighborhood. Even celebrities appear as ordinary citizens encountered in their own milieufrom former President François Mitterrand to novelist Marguerite Duras, singer Edith Piaf to actress Catherine Deneuve, fashion designer Christian Dior to artist Giacometti. The citys rich history and traditions are inherent in images depicting the bravery of an unknown female resistance fighter, the exuberant joy upon the Liberation of Paris, the eroticism of burlesque dancers, or the excitement of the final lap of the Tour de France. Crusty baguettes, buttery escargot, glasses of wine, and abundant butcher cases attest to the gastronomic pleasures of the city, and all of the monumentsthe Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dameappear like cast members at curtain call. This book celebrates the myriad aspects of Paris in a volume as captivating for the lifelong Parisian as it is for the armchair traveler.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

In 2012, the Eastman Kodak Company declared bankruptcy. That same year, a group of ten photographers from Magnum Photos—Jim Goldberg, Bruce Gilden, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Alec Soth, Larry Towell, Alex Webb, and Donovan Wylie, plus Chien-Chi Chang, who documented the process in audio and video—established a temporary base of operations in Rochester, New York, former home to the once-dominant manufacturer of photographic film. Their goal: to create both a documentary archive of that city’s culture and landscape, and a photo-based experience engaging its residents; and to investigate a community of picture-makers comprised not only of Eastman Kodak, but also the Visual Studies Workshop, George Eastman House, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the citizensof Rochester. Over the course of almost three weeks, photographers, students, faculty, and residents worked together to create a visual record of the city and its people at a time of significant transition. Nathan Lyons, founding director of the Visual Studies Workshop, describes the resultas “not only a major documentary project, but a celebration of photography within the city that had for years been a center of imaging technologies.”

Upon arrival in Rochester, Martin Parr gave each photographer the task of assembling one hundred photographs to form the basis of an archive. Rochester 585/716 presents all one thousand images, together with commentary by poets Cornelius Eady and Marie Howe, art historian and photo theorist Laura Wexler, and photographer and educator Nathan Lyons. Five sets of the images were printed as a portfolio, each of which now resides in major private and public collections. Two artist proof sets were also created, one of which will be dispersed via the one thousand copies of this publication. Each individual copy contains a single loose print, selected at random from this additional set.

Postcards from America is an ongoing, collaborative project. Since 2011, a loose group of Magnum photographers—including the eleven featured in this volume— has periodically gathered in locations across America to experiment with the notion of working together to create a new documentary archive of the United States.

Picture of From a Summer Notebook

Publisher's Description

“Here are pages from a photographer’s summer notebook, the sights he wishes to remember, the feelings he wishes to record…These pages from my notebook encompass that same time, those same places, seen through a different eye, recorded in a different language…” Ruth Bains Hartmann

So begins From a Summer Notebook which combines the photographs of Magnum photojournalist Erich Hartmann and the words of his writer wife Ruth Bains Hartmann to record a shared summer holiday in coastal Maine. Not an album of incidents but a distillation of that particular time and place as seen through the eye and mind of the photographer, and as remembered in the writer’s words. Long married, much traveled, often separated by work, together here in the same places at the same time in a calm interval of privacy, writer and photographer reveal a separate reality, memories that are parallel, not identical, that join to make one statement. Photographs of their family summer house and of the quiet countryside of Maine through which they roam without plan or destination, even as they roam their private thoughts, are not described but enhanced by the writer’s expression of feeling and memory about themselves, about their lives in Maine over many summers, perhaps about time itself. Separate and personal, these photographs and words come together in quiet celebration of a shared remembered summer.

I can’t find a specific online portfolio but the Hartmann photos on this Magnum page should give you a fair idea.
