By this Journal I don't intend to advertise any book (and it doesn't need
). But this Magnum release is a good oportunity to explore the "World of Photography".
What are they, and what for? I went down that road before, here and they are records of a roll of film where photographers reviewed and edited their shoots from, a photographic image produced from film, sometimes from a film negative, and sometimes from a film positive.
And this release is important and spices up the curiousity because it shows how World-class photographers work, in two phases: the pursue of the image; and the selection process, as we do today, and the reasons that lead to their choices.
'Pulling a good picture out of a contact sheet,' Cartier-Bresson said, 'is like going down to the cellar and bringing back a good bottle to share."
