An Extraordinary Narrative

An Extraordinary Narrative

The first woman to join the Magnum collective, photographer Inge Morath (1923-2002) forged an extraordinary career. Travelling across the globe to capture scenes of life in Spain, Iran, China and beyond, she became a purveyor of personal and universal stories.

This influential journey is highlighted in Linda Gordon’s Inge Morath: An Illustrated Biography, a book featuring black-and-white and colour images from throughout her career.  As late playwright Arthur Miller notes: “She made poetry out of people and their places over half a century.”

The book is published by Prestel Publishing and Magnum Foundation. Find out more here.
