Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book chronicles the work of three generations of Magnum photographers and the history, culture, and societies they have documented since founding Magnum in 1947. Put together by Boot (Here Is New York), a former Magnum photographer himself, the volume includes the personal stories of such renowned figures as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alex Majoli, and Susan Meiselas. Each photographer addresses his or her area of specialty, providing a distinctive window into the cultural life of a nation or the dreadful reality of poverty or civil conflict. The kaleidoscope of world events and prominent figures found within these pages is astounding. There are valuable insights into the process of producing a photo story and the profound impact of news magazines like Time and Life. The value of this book can be fully fathomed when one realizes that much of the general population experiences history through photographs, which in turn shapes human memory. Recommended for collections focusing on photography and journalistic history.-Savannah Schroll, formerly with Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, DC Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
