Description - Magnum Landscape by Ian Jeffrey
For 50 years Magnum photographers, through commissions and their personal work, have produced images that comment on the state of the world. In photographing the landscape they are not just spectators but participants, aware that the land itself has been shaped by man, and that the notion of landscape itself depends on a human viewpoint. As each photographer records, interprets and finds a unique personal style, the variations on a there are endless - landscapes of war, of agriculture, of industry, of cities and motorways, of desolation, of celebration and tranquillity . The photographs gathered in this book invite the viewer to rediscover the landscape and think more profoundly about the planet earth. The work of celebrated photographers such as Abbas, Eve Arnold, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Joseph Koudelka and Robert Capa is included.
