Details: Product Description The ultimate collection of street photography from the world-famous Magnum Photos Agency Magnum Streetwise is an unmissable tour through the photographs and practices that have helped define what street photography is and can be. Magnum photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson pioneered ‘modern’ concepts of street photography before the term was even coined – but their influence is far from historic. A rich seam of street photography runs through the heart of Magnum to this day, both in the work of recognized masters of street photography – such as Erwitt, Parr, Gilden and Kalvar – and of those who might not even consider themselves street photographers; a continued influence that has not gone unnoticed among the current generation of budding street photographers and fans. Magnum Streetwise is a true visual feast, interleaving insightful texts and anecdotes within an intuitive blend of photographer- and theme-based portfolios, exploring not only the work of outstanding photographers, but how common subject matter (places of leisure, marketplaces, travel) and locations (Paris, New York, Tokyo) have been addressed, conceptually and practically, across the agency and through the ages. Magnum Streetwise is an essential addition to the bibliography of street photography, showcasing hidden gems alongside many of the genre’s most famous images. Review This has got to be the ultimate bible for fans of the genre ... a lot of books pass through the Amateur Photographer office, but as a particular fan of this kind of photography, I haven't seen a better one in a long time --Amateur Photographer Informative, visually compelling and genuinely exciting to thumb through, it's a substantial tome that illuminates the work of some of street photography's masters --Creative Review Image-driven but with passages of text that offer insight into featured photographers' practices, the book whisks readers off on a tour through history and across many parts of the world --Royal Photographic Society Journal It shows how the impulse to take candid pictures is continually being redefined --Aesthetica This book delves into the archive and presents us with unparalleled works by photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Gilden and Christopher Anderson --Monocle From a New York street crossing splattered with spilt red cherries to the colourful marketplaces and street vendors of Tokyo, this book is a sensory blast with surprise along the way --Best Art Books of 2020, Sunday Times Glorious celebration --Telegraph, Travel Books of the Year An unrivalled collection of arresting street shots that span all manner of subjects, places and concepts from fast-and-loose framing to sharp monochrome portraits --Stuff Pays homage to Cartier-Bresson's black-and-white decisive moments and examines the way that spirit has been taken forwards --Observer Street photography doesn't come any better than Magnum. On the pages of this book you will see some of the best street photography you could possibly encounter, shot by some of the best of the genre --Black & White Photography Informative, visually compelling and genuinely exciting to thumb through, it's a substantial tome that illuminates the work of some of street photography's masters --Creative Review McLaren has excelled in presenting to us many previously unpublished images alongside portfolios from less known members ... Magnum Streetwise offers an excellent overview as well as a tantalising glimpse of what other treasures are in store --Cellophaneland About the Author Stephen McLaren is a photographer, writer and curator based in Los Angeles.
