Magnum Contact Sheets Summary

Magnum Contact Sheets by Kristen Lubben

This exceptional book, published here in an accessibly priced paperback format, comes out just as the shift to digital photography threatens to render the contact sheet obsolete. It celebrates the contact sheet as a fascinating way of accompanying great photographers as they work towards, and capture, the most enduring images of our time. 139 contact sheets, representing 69 photographers, are featured, as well as zoom-in details, selected photographs, press cards, notebooks and spreads from contemporary publications, including Life magazine and Picture Post. Further insight is provided by texts written by the photographers themselves or by experts chosen by members' estates. It includes many greats of photography, among them Henri Cartier- Bresson, Elliott Erwitt and Inge Morath, as well as Magnum's latest generation, such as Jonas Bendiksen, Alessandra Sanguinetti and Alec Soth. These photographers cover over 70 years of history, from the D-Day landings by Robert Capa and the Paris riots of 1968 by Bruno Barbey to images of Che Guevara by Rene Burri, Malcolm X by Eve Arnold and classic New Yorkers by Bruce Gilden.

Magnum Contact Sheets Reviews

'Exemplary ... stunningly beautiful' - Geoff Dyer, Observer
'Utterly absorbing. To be able to follow dozens upon dozens of the most recognised images of the 20th century backwards through the selection process gives these pictures a new immediacy and vitality ... fascinating and surprisingly intimate' - John Banville, Daily Telegraph
'Magnificent ... every compelling image gives us an intimate and exciting sense of walking alongside the photographer' - RA Magazine
'A treasure trove' - Andrew Motion, Guardian
'A fascinating book that can not only be enjoyed for itself but can be utilised as a great learning tool for the most difficult task of all - picture editing' - Black & White Photography
