Summary
A vision of the contemporary world since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, by the photographers of Magnum. The volume includes work from a range of photographers from Cartier-Bresson to the organization's newest recruits. The images are presented in a sequence of photo essays introduced by the photographers themselves. Many of the images were shot especially for the book.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Magnum is a society of photographers formed by the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Chim Seymour. This book is in part a product of the fiftieth-anniversary celebration of the agency's work. Most of the photographs are from the 1990s, a decade that presented photographers with an unprecedented period of undeclared wars, ethnic cleansings, and other horrible conflicts in such obscure places as the Balkans, Chechnya, and Somalia. Normal life may seem impossible in such regions, but the photographers continually capture attempts at normalcy. For instance, in one photograph a young woman in white lies bleeding in the street, her dog dead beside her--both victims of random shelling in downtown Sarajevo. Another photograph shows a black youth enjoying a trampoline in Soweto, while in the next one a boy lies dead after an "anti-violence" demonstration--also in Soweto. Not since the Family of Man exhibition of the 1950s has there been such a chance to examine the world through the lenses of the great photographers of this century. --Marlene Chamberlain"
