Magnum Contact Sheets, Hardback

Magnum Contact Sheets Hardback

Edited by Kristen Lubben


This is the compact edition of the definitive volume on how iconic images by Magnum photographers are made.

Newly re-formatted and with 16 extra pages, this publication features superb reproductions of more than 130 contact sheets and over 200 photographs taken from the sheets, bearing witness to the creative methods, strategies and editing processes used by many of the acknowledged greats of photography.

Whether George Rodgers photographs of the Blitz in 1940, Philippe Halsman's memorably surreal image of a leaping Salvador Dali, Burt Glinn capturing the end of segregation in 1950s Arkansas, David Hurn photographing the Beatles in 1964, Joseph Koudelka's extraordinary images of the invasion of Prague, Susan Meiselas in Nicaragua in the 1970s, Raymond Depardon at the fall of the Berlin Wall, Larry Towell in El Salvador, Bruce Gilden photographing classic New York scenes or Jim Goldberg creating his remarkable, experimental artworks, the contact sheets and images in this book constitute an extraordinary record of great images being captured and edited.
