Magnum Cycling

978-0-500-54457-0

“Visually stunning and insightful… The balance of text to photographs is perfect: Guy Andrews's narrative and captions inform and elucidate, and then get out of the way of the extraordinary images that are the heart of this beautiful book. More than 200 gorgeous, intimate photographs in black-and-white and vibrant color present a view of a sport that is adrenaline-filled, fast-paced and deeply, tenderly human. Magnum Cycling is a superior collection of art, history and emotion.”

Magnum Manifesto

978-0-500-54455-6

“Magnum Manifesto collects more than 500 images made by the collective's members. It also presents documents pulled from its archives, dating from the collective’s founding to the present. The project celebrates the images that have embodied its mission and reveals that the collective has struggled with how to proceed right from the start. The photographs are organized chronologically and grouped into sections that correspond roughly to themes: human rights, identity, and political change. The documents reproduced in the book include the company's 1947 Certificate of Incorporation, which states that the agency's purpose is, among other tasks…"to carry on the business of photography."”

— Rebecca Robertson Photo District News

“A feast of trenchant, often-wrenching imagery drawn from the organization’s vast archives.”
