Magum Photos

Magnum Photos was founded in 1947 by Robert Capa, David Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and George Rodger as a response to their World War II experiences. It's one of the first photography cooperatives owned and operated by its members. One of my favorite photography books is Magnum: Fifty Years at the Front Line. I recommend this book, not only for its amazing shots, but also because it is an excellent time capsule documenting the history of our nation.
