I particularly love this book as it shows how much the final printed out shoot differs from the ones shown in the contact sheet indicating that some degree of printing skills was involved to make the photo work very well. As well as that exposure is not always spot on when they took the photos in the hectic situation.
I also love the stories associated with each of the winning shots from each contact sheet taken over the years. Keep in mind, this isn't just for film enthusiast (but it helps to have a better understanding of the work presented here) as later chapters shows digital contact sheet as well.
The reproductions of the photographs in this book are of outstanding quality. This is an iconic book that will be highly sought after in the future. I would expect prices to skyrocket once it is out of print.
In my opinion, this is a book that every serious photographer, student of photography and connoisseur of fine photography books should own.
And now for the bad news: Due to a combination of marginal binding strength by Thames & Hudson and improper packing for shipment by Amazon, I had to return the book repeatedly to get an undamaged and/or non-defective copy. When copy #4 arrived, I at long last had an acceptable copy of this outstanding book. There are two threads on this book and the trials and tribulations associated with it at L-Camera-Forum (Google it).
I would rate the book at five stars (or an "A") for content and quality of photographic reproduction. However, in terms of the binding I would have to rate it at two stars (or a "D").
It is truly unfortunate that the marginal binding has flawed an iconic book that is in all other ways a masterpiece.
Many of the images are stunning, even more are extremely confronting. Some are timeless, and will elicit strong reactions and emotions. Iconic scenes from all over the world,and people internationally known.
The stories behind the images, both personal and historic, add a level of understanding as to what and why.
It's well worth getting.
Oh, another thing; it's a large volume and quite heavy, so don't expect to tote it around for a read in the park.
Did they crop or print the entire negative? These are the actual work sheets of the Magnum photographers. Like looking over their shoulders at Le Select. Wonderful.
