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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'These are photographs of the great, taken by the great ... history in the making on both sides of the camera.' (Guardian)

'It is precisely this vaunted knack for being there that elevates Magnum Cinema above the panting pack of visually breathless Hollywood picture books.' (Vogue)

'Most movie photo books are ephemeral by nature, this is one to savor.' (Los Angeles Times)

'A must for anyone interested in film.' (The Times)
