Magnum Stories
There are 61 Magnum photographers featured in the book. Each photographer is represented across 8 pages by a photo story of their choice, which is fully illustrated, and a text which is written in the photographer’s own voice based on new interviews with the author. The texts are intelligent, idiosyncratic, each with their own voice and style.

The photographic genres covered include war photography, documentary, photojournalism, social realism, portraits of people and places, fashion and news.

The book explores the influences that have affected the photo story, such as key twentieth century events and the life of photographic magazines such as Newsweek, Time, and Paris Match, all of which have helped to define the genre. It provides a unique reflection on the course of photojournalism in the second half of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, from the common purpose of the post-WWII years to the individualistic range of practices and interests that constitute documentary photography today.
