Witness: Magnum Photographs from the Front Line of World War II by Remy Desquesnes

A vivid reminder of World War II, this collection attests to the suffering caused by war and the acts of courage that arose from the ashes. Taken from Magnum’s archives, these images—by the greatest photographers of the era—bear witness to the world-changing events of the war, immortalized in moments of daring and honor, and to the devastation it left behind across the conflict zones in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Organized chronologically, each photograph delivers dramatic impact through its powerful aesthetic quality and documentary importance, and is accompanied by a succinct text explaining its historical context. Includes Magnum photographers Werner Bischof, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Erich Hartmann, Erich Lessing, Herbert List, Wayne Miller, George Rodger, David Seymour, W. Eugene Smith, Kryn Taconis, the Soviet Group, and Wu Yinxian.
