   schema:reviewBody ""The history of Magnum is the story of its photographers - some of the most talented, brave, and resourceful in the world -- including Eve Arnold, Rene Burri, Cornell Capa, Bruce Davidson, Ernst Haas, Mary Ellen Mark, Susan Meiselas, Inge Morath, James Nachtwey, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, Sebastiao Salgado, and Dennis Stock. Magnum follows them on assignment -- including encounters with soldiers, bodyguards, and visa troubles -- and into the offices of Magnum, with all the moments of inspiration and inevitable frictions of brilliant and opinionated people working together. Fifty years after its founding, Magnum remains a testament to the vision of its founders, and membership in it is still the most coveted badge of honor and prestige that a photographer can attain. Full of wonderful stories, heroic feats, and human drama, Magnum is a dramatic, sweeping portrait of the worlds greatest photo house and its times."--Jacket." ;
