In this landmark photography publication and accompanying exhibition, Cl�ment Ch�roux demonstrates how Magnum Photos owes its pre-eminence to the ability of its photographers to encompass and navigate the points between photography as art object and photography as documentary evidence. A Magnum photograph can be expressive and bear witness at the same time. Magnum Manifesto is organized into three main parts: Part 1 (1947-1968) views the Magnum archive through a humanist lens, focusing on post-war ideals of commonality and utopianism. Part 2 (1969-1989) shows a world fragmenting, with a focus on subcultures, minorities and outsiders. Part 3 (1990-present day) charts the ways in which Magnum photographers have captured - and continue to capture - a world in flux and under threat. Featuring both group and individual projects, the book includes contact sheets, notebooks, magazine spreads and other previously unseen material to accompany the photographs. Complete with extensive texts by Cl�ment Ch�roux and photographic historian Clara Bouveresse, Magnum Manifesto is an essential purchase for anyone seeking to understand the very best in photography.

From Christian missionary publications to the media strategies employed by today’s NGOs, this interdisciplinary collection explores the entangled histories of humanitarianism and media. It traces the emergence of humanitarian imagery in the West and investigates how the meanings of suffering and aid have been constructed in a period of evolving mass communication, demonstrating the extent to which many seemingly new phenomena in fact have long historical legacies. Ultimately, the critical histories collected here help to challenge existing asymmetries and help those who advocate a new cosmopolitan consciousness recognizing the dignity and rights of others.

How the Vietnam War changed American art By the late 1960s, the United States was in a pitched conflict in Vietnam, against a foreign enemy, and at home—between Americans for and against the war and the status quo. This powerful book showcases how American artists responded to the war, spanning the period from Lyndon B. Johnson’s fateful decision to deploy U.S. Marines to South Vietnam in 1965 to the fall of Saigon ten years later. Artists Respond brings together works by many of the most visionary and provocative artists of the period, including Asco, Chris Burden, Judy Chicago, Corita Kent, Leon Golub, David Hammons, Yoko Ono, and Nancy Spero. It explores how the moral urgency of the Vietnam War galvanized American artists in unprecedented ways, challenging them to reimagine the purpose and uses of art and compelling them to become politically engaged on other fronts, such as feminism and civil rights. The book presents an era in which artists struggled to synthesize the turbulent times and participated in a process of free and open questioning inherent to American civic life. Beautifully illustrated, Artists Respond features a broad range of art, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, performance and body art, installation, documentary cinema and photography, and conceptualism.

Magnum Opus

A Manifesto of Love and Beauty

This book is about the struggle of good versus evil set in a dystopian society in the year 2525. There are actual forces in nature that are evil, which limit your freedom and try to reshape who you were meant to be. This, however, is a celebration of triumph. The two romantic sojourners take a pilgrimage through paradise to prove the immortality of love, beauty, truth, and perfection. It is the realization and self-actualization of becoming your greatest potential?you. All research for this was done by The Divine Artist and Cathion, travelling the world only to find the ultimate answers right back where they started from, within themselves. The beauty of how they were able to live in their art. This is a microcosm of society depicted in a dreamlike state. The twelve-day trip represents the state of the world now, in the past, and in the future. It represents the real world and the dream world all as being part of one reality. The world is depicted in art, music, mathematics, science, religion, in metaphysics, in the mind, in the world, and in magnum opus, separately and together all at the same time. Much the same as Douglas Hofstadter?s self-referencing recursion loop, a holographic universe in which everything is in everything, a world that contains both good and evil all at the same time. It is that moment in time within the infinity of time that has its own significance because it is the only one of its kind. It is infinitely important and significant in its own way, not relative to any other moment. It is what it is?nothing more and nothing less. A moment in time is through the grace of God, the only thing we have, could ever want, and will ever need. It is the here and now that we are one with God. According to the author Leo Buscaglia, ?a life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized.?
