Influential Photography Books – Magnumº

This is one of the most influential photographic books on my shelf. I have the highest respect and admiration for each Magnum photographer that’s been nominated and selected to join this small group. Magnumº – A book I’d highly recommend for anyone interested in a journalistic approach to photography.

This elite group of photographers was originally founded by artist that wanted to protect the copyright of their works. The founding members, all photographers, Robert Capa, David “Chim” Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and William Vandivert created the group in 1947.
