Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By taking the temperature of the world's political and social climate, the photographers of magnum offer us a vision of the contemporary world as the new millennium begins. Fifty years since the legendary group began its documentary mission, Magnum photo agency addresses the world following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 — a period which has seen the triumph of American capitalism at one extreme and the resurgence of ancient blood feuds at the other. In this major work, Magnum locate individual points of human experience north, south, east and west, and engage with the thrust of human history to different degrees — some photographers tackling dramatic events head-on in the traditional manner of the 'concerned photographer', others choosing subjects and aesthetic viewpoints which are entirely personal. The book is built around photo-essays selected by photographers ranging from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Magnum's newest recruits.
