MAGNUM »MAGNUM CONTACT SHEET« – selected by YOLANDA CUOMO

»In search of photo books, I went to three of my favorite book stores in New York. I wanted to seem smart, 23 hip, and cool, so I began picking up books that had weird bindings and strange covers. I picked these books up and within minutes put them down again. And then in the corner of the store, in a stack on the floor, I found the magnum contact sheet book. I sat there and pored over the pages, every one of them. What I loved was the story; the narrative, the archaeology of image finding, the search, the story behind the image. In this book, images, like old friends, were shown in context, their story outside the famous frame. Acting without thought, solely on instinct, I had found the book I loved.«
