Magnum Photobook with Carole Naggar and Fred Ritchin: Salon #18
Magnum Photobook: The Catalogue Raisonne
On Wednesday, 22 March 2017, we gathered on Manhattan’s upper west side for a “books on books” discussion with Carole Naggar and Fred Ritchin, authors of the recently released Magnum Photobook: The Catalogue Raisonne.
Carole Naggar is a poet and photography historian. She has written biographies of George Rodger, Werner Bischof and David Seymour (Chim). Among her recent contributions are an essay Saul Leiter: In My Room (Steidl, 2017) and a translation of Henri Cartier-Bresson: Interviews and Conversations, 1951 – 1998 (2017), as well as two volumes of poetry: Haiku by Night (Dobbin Books) and Voyage à Kyoto (Pixel Press).
Fred Ritchin is Dean of the School at the International Center of Photography. His books include After Photography (WW Norton, 2008) and Bending the Frame: Photojournalism, Documentary, and the Citizen (Aperture, 2013). The exhibition based on his book on alternative social documentary, “Bending the Frame,” will be shown at New York University and also at the Preus Museum in Norway in 2017.
And a big thank you to Deirdre Donohue and the International Center of Photography Library for allowing us to share a few of the Magnum photobooks in their collection.
