FrontRunners: Photo Op

  • The Editors

During a rough stint covering World

War II, British photojournalist George Rodger took some remarkable photos in

Africa, including the one of horsemen shown above. In 1947, Rodger, along with

his colleagues Robert Capa, David Seymour, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, founded

Magnum Photos, a cooperative that produced some of the most memorable images

ever recorded by camera. Twelve original platinum prints, three by each of the

four founders, appear together in Magnum Founders, which will be published in February by Verso Limited Editions

(www­.versoeditions.com). Verso is offering only 75 of the leather-bound,

14-by-16-inch volumes, each encased in an English buckram clamshell. The

prepublication price for the book is $12,500.
