Burt Glinn: Half a Century as a Magnum Photographer
First comprehensive monograph on acclaimed Magnum photographer Burt Glinn
Highlighting Burt Glinn’s extraordinary versatility and talent for picturing the most iconic and everyday scenes of the second half of the 20th century, this is the first monograph covering the breadth of Glinn’s storied career. With rarely seen and acclaimed images, Burt Glinn: Half a Century as a Magnum Photographer celebrates the compelling, elegant, and always expressive ways Glinn experienced the world through photography. Along with Eve Arnold and Dennis Stock, he was among the first Americans to join Magnum Photos, when he became an associate member in 1951.
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Glinn served in the U.S. Army, attended Harvard, and worked for Life magazine before joining Magnum. Documenting conflict, leisure, medicine, and more, Burt Glinn (1925–2008) received many awards for his editorial and corporate photography.
