About the Author

Magnum Photos, the world’s most prestigious photographic agency, was formed in 1947 by four photographers: Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David ‘Chim’ Seymour. Their members are renowned for their intelligence in combining both reporter and artist in the photographer’s role – attributes that have defined Magnum for over 60 years, and continue to do so.
