Comments | [08/08/07] It´s one of my first english books to read about PJ - and it pulled me into magnum from the first page on. The "big" story and the tiny stories alongside create a nice mix, also focussing on many of the most important photographers of the 20th century. Whether it´s Capa and the girls, Cartier-Bresson beeing the strange french guy he was or the agency, struggling to survive: It is like traveling through History. And it´s a real bargain!

Comments | [05/17/04] Awesome book, I just finished reading it. It is interesting to get such an in depth look at the history and the people behind Magnum. I loved reading about the situations that they had to deal with and how through it all they somehow managed to persevere.
