  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • More than 120 contact sheets selected by some seventy Magnum photographers or their estates: a definitive book on how
    the best photographs are created and edited.

    Contact sheets unveil the story of what went into a photograph. Was it the outcome of what a photographer had in mind
    from the outset? Did it emerge from a diligently worked sequence? Was the right shot a matter of being in the right
    place at the right time? Here, for the first time, are the best contact sheets created by Magnum photographers. They
    reveal the creative methods, strategies, and editing processes used by some of the acknowledged greats of photography,
    from legends such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliott Erwitt to Magnum’s latest generation, including Jonas Bendiksen,
    Trent Parke, and Alec Soth.

    Events, places, and people from over seventy years of history are contained in Magnum’s contact sheets, including the
    Normandy landings by Robert Capa, Che Guevara by Rene´ Burri, the Paris riots of 1968 by Bruno Barbey, Malcolm X by Eve
    Arnold, and New York street scenes by Bruce Gilden.

    With supporting texts by the photographers or by those selected by the estates of deceased Magnum members, and
    ancillary material such as press cards, notebooks, and filed captions, this landmark publication provides a depth of
    understanding and a critical analysis of the backstory to a photograph. 250 full-color and 200 black-and-white
