“Artfully weaves together a sort of history of Magnum Photos. An excellent video … [on] photography’s changing role. It will inspire undergraduates and fire up bored professionals. Filmmaker Reiner Holzemer deserves a round of applause. Highly recommended.”—Educational Media Reviews Online
“A tightly edited 58 minutes of history and honest talk about the cooperative… [MAGNUM PHOTOS] succeeds in letting us hear what’s on [the photographers’] minds, watching them shoot and seeing the final contact sheet. If you liked Russell Miller’s book on Magnum, you’ll enjoy seeing the personalities come to life in Holzemer’s film.”—PDN (Photo District News)
“Utilizing some first rate shots of the classic images on which Magnum’s reputation was built, [MAGNUM PHOTOS] provides an excellent general introduction to those unique qualities and achievements that still make it the finest photo agency in the world…. Quintessentially Magnum on Magnum – honest and dispassionate.”—History of Photography
