Paris: Le Bal, 2017.
Condition: As New
Every year it seems there is a slew of books on or about the documentary cooperative Magnum Photos. This one from Le Bal in Paris really stands out and makes me look back fondly at my own years working at the agency in New York. It draws upon the archive prints that were used as a reference library produced in the form of a binder and features a seemingly random selection of images (scanned straight from the tattered prints), many fold out into gatefolds or posters much are accompanied wit the original captions and story notes sometimes with updated notes by the photographers. it was a really wonderful way of interacting with history through the eyes of a group of curious photojournalists and artists and the dedicated archivists who captioned and catalogued their work.
