Overview

This generously illustrated book for lovers of photography includes 365 images from the greatest photojournalists of today and yesterday. Founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Magnum Photos is an iconic international photographic cooperative whose members have captured the major historical events of their times, as well as private and intimate moments. A year's worth of these images is offered in this beautiful book that features full page reproductions organized to reflect what Cartier-Bresson himself declared 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. Nearly 70 photographers are represented with five to six images and the current Magnum members have selected the photographs that they consider to best represent their own output. Opposite each photograph is a page reserved for special dates, reflections, and notes. Published in an appealing and impressively-sized format, running more than 700 pages, this book includes images that make history both individual and universal.

Editorial Reviews

Magnum Photos is an international photographic cooperative, but co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson described it best. "Magnum," he wrote, "is 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." This large format pictorial exemplifies those attributes with 365 images from 70 photographers and photojournalists. The presentation of A Year in Photography is lavish; more than 700 pages with high quality reproductions.
