This book is a biography of Magnum, told largely in the words of its photographers. It offers a unique perspective on half a century of world history from an extraordinary group of men and women who were front line witnesses at virtually every major event in the last fifty years. Wars, famines, natural disasters, social, political and environmental crises - Magnum photographers were there. They have been acute observers of the human condition, photographing the richest people in the world, the poorest, the least known and the most celebrated, from Marilyn Monroe to Che Guevara, JFK to Nelson Mandela, Picasso to Krushchev. This is a multi-layered story. At one level, it tells how a small group of photographrs - among them Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson and George Rodger - came together, established and nurtured a co-operative photographic agency that has survived against all the odds to become the most famous in the world. At a secondary level, it is the richly anecdotal story of the photographers themselves, their adventures around the world and their feelings about, and reactions to, their assignments.

This book explores alternative ways of understanding Havana both as an imagined political construct and as a cultural product. It provides a vision of how and why we see the city as we do and evaluates the ways in which images of Havana have been (mis)constructed in the global imaginary. Bringing out interactions and tensions between real and imaginary spaces, it examines the political implications of unique spatial and metaphorical representations of the city and explores the crucial role that image-makers and cultural producers have played in the global perception of Havana through photography, material culture and documentary film.

This book analyses the relationship between comics and cultural memory. By focussing on a range of landmark comics from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, the discussion draws attention to the ongoing role of visual culture in framing testimony, particularly in relation to underprivileged subjects such as migrants and refugees, individuals dealing with war and oppressive regimes and individuals living with particular health conditions. The discussion is influenced by literary and cultural debates on the intersections between ethics, testimony, trauma, and human rights, reflected in its three overarching questions: ‘How do comics usually complicate the production of cultural memory in local contents and global mediascapes?’, ‘How do comics engage with, and generate, new forms of testimonial address?’, and ‘How do the comics function as mnemonic structures?’ The author highlights that the power of comics is that they allow both creators and readers to visualise the fracturing power of violence and oppression – at the level of the individual, domestic, communal, national and international – in powerful and creative ways. Comics do not stand outside of literature, cinema, or any of the other arts, but rather enliven the reciprocal relationship between the verbal and the visual language that informs all of these media. As such, the discussion demonstrates how fields such as graphic medicine, graphic justice, and comics journalism contribute to existing theoretical and analytics debates, including critical visual theory, trauma and memory studies, by offering a broad ranging, yet cohesive, analysis of cultural memory and its representation in print and digital comics.

Leonard Freed ranks among the giants of twentieth-century photojournalism. His work as a member of Magnum regularly graced the front pages of major newspapers around the world, as well as the covers of many international magazines. Worldview, the most ambitious collection of Freed's work ever produced, spans his full 50-year career, from coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict back through the American Civil Rights movement to post-war German reconstruction. Among other highlights, it includes a key selection of images from his New York City Police Department project that became the landmark book, Police Work.There, as throughout his career, Freed's vision was sharp, insightful and critical, but always deeply sympathetic to his fellow human beings--he was a pioneer in what has aptly been called "concerned photography." He died in 2006.
