FrontRunners: Photo Op
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.
