Magnum Photographers on Film Sets

By Alberto Barbera (Editor)

Over 60 years since the legendary cooperative photographic agency began, the Magnum photographers have borne witness to some of the most important moments in cultural history, recording the making of many of history's classic films. Magnum Photographers on Film Sets takes readers behind the scenes of cinematic masterpieces including Charlie Chaplin's Limelight (with W. Eugene Smith), Billy Wilder's The Seven Year Itch (with Elliott Erwitt), Nicholas Ray's Rebel Without a Cause (with Dennis Stock), Orson Welles' The Trial (with Nicolas Tikhomiroff), John Huston's Moby Dick (with Erich Lessing), Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Suddenly, Last Summer(with Burt Glinn), Andrzej Zulawski's L'important c'est d'aimer(with Jean Gaumy), Michelangelo Antonioni's Zabriskie Point (with Bruce Davidson) and Volker Schlondorff's Death of a Salesman (with Inge Morath). The publication features both classic and rarely seen photos of Hollywood's finest such as Montgomery Clift, James Dean, Clark Gable, Katharine Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Dustin Hoffman, Buster Keaton, Klaus Kinski, John Malkovich, Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Anthony Perkins, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, Natalie Wood and many more. Magnum Photographers on Film Sets reveals an unusual side to the activities of the agency's photographers, and reminds us of their ubiquity in postwar culture.
