Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Like the traveling exhibition it accompanies, this 55-year retrospective celebrates the founding of Magnum, a photographers' collective, in 1947. Manchester's lively essay is weak in the area of photo history, but, as we might expect, the photographs (by 52 members) are the book's real strength. Well reproduced, they show every aspect of human experience from the Spanish Civil War to the late 1980s: war, asylums, poverty and famine, family life, drugs, religion, crime, government, leisure, high society, and celebrities. Images by lesser-known names hold their own next to those by Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and other legendary photographers. The absence of an index makes it difficult, however, to get back to particular images, which are grouped neither chronologically nor by photographer. An important book for photo history and journalism collections.

Review

“The year's most important book of photographs. . . . [Magnum] has acted as the conscience of our times—as far as journalistic photography is concerned.” — Peter S. Prescott (Newsweek)

Format: Paperback
This book is a "must-have" for anyone who has even the most remote interest in photojournalism. Every time you turn the page of this book, you will enter a new era and meet a new person or feel a new experience...and surely you will envy the talent and experience of the photographers who bring it all to print.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By T. TOM TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 23, 2001
Format: Paperback
If you are into photojournalistic photography, then you have undoubtedly heard of Magnum. This book is for you if you care about Magnum and are interested in seeing the work of prominent Magnum photographers and reading a bit about the history of Magnum and photography in general.
The book is quite big and heavy. This makes it great to display on a coffee table and to view the powerful photographs, but not so easy to read the 3 essays. Also, the book only covers up to the mid to late 80's. It should be updated to include the Magnum photographers of the 90s. That said, it's is still packed with important and inspiring work.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great collection of some hands-down stunning photography. The copy may as well not be there as it almost detracts from the impact of the art the book is presenting. While it feels a bit outdated with 1988 as the latest examples shown, In Our Time, is still a neat book to look at.
