Magnum in China

Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson made their first forays in China in the 1930s and '40s, respectively. Since then, Magnum’s global roster of photographers has made in-depth visual investigations, resulting in a vast Chinese archive that documents the country and its people, as well as the changes they have witnessed over the last nine decades. The newly-published book, Magnum China (Thames & Hudson), encapsulates both classic and contemporary practices and reflects the agency’s long history of documentary storytelling. The below curation of fine prints celebrates the book and this long heritage of working with and within China.
