Magnum Manifesto

By Magnum Photos

Edited by Clément Chéroux in collaboration with Clara Bouveresse

Thames & Hudson


This publication celebrates the 70th anniversary of the world’s greatest photographic agency – Magnum Photos. And a true celebration it is. The book presents an encyclopaedia of not only photography, but also of history captured by the agency’s great list of photographers, alongside wonderful glimpses of the creation of Magnum Photos back in 1947.

Separated into three parts, the manifesto explores the world post war (1947-68), a fragmenting world (1969-89) and a world under threat (1990-2017). Shown through a variety of different applications, the photos are both art objects and documentary evidence – photography can be expressive and bear witness at the same time.
