Magnum Cinema: Photographs from 50 years of movie-making (Paperback)Alain Bergala (author)
- Publisher out of stock
The photographers from the renowned photo agency Magnum have worked with movie-makers since the agency was established half a century ago. Robert Capa, a founding member of what has become the world's most prestigious picture agency, was a close friend of John Huston, with whom he began to combine the talents of great photographers with those of great directors and actors - a tradition that has continued to the present day.
These momentous partnerships are properly celebrated for the first time ever in a book that is teeming with powerful images of such legends as Clint Eastwood, Marilyn Monroe, Ingrid Bergman, James Dean, Clark Gable and many others. The roll-call of over 50 leading photographers includes Eve Arnold, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Raymond Depardon, Philippe Halsman, Elliott Erwitt, David 'Chim' Seymour and Dennis Stock.
A must-have for photography- and film-lovers alike - from the amateur to the connoiseur - Magnum Cinema embodies the result of a unique assimilation of talent on film: both before and behind the camera.
