Item description for Magnum M3: Fear (M) by Nicholas Guiraud Christophe Renard...
What does a photograph document? What does it mean? M is a biannual journal that explores the role of photography beyond its usual illustrative, commercial or purely journalistic purposes by addressing the issue of its documentary value. Each issue is organized upon a single concept--in this case, Fear--around which iconic images from the past are juxtaposed with recent work by Magnum photographers. Containing work by 25 Magnum alumni, M3 is a book of "photographic introspection." For fear is capable of both curbing and driving artistic production. It can be anecdotal, traumatic, fleeting, absent or fundamental. Fear is an abstract idea for some photographers, a deep-seated sentiment for others. From Raymond Depardon's Correspondence New-Yorkaise or Paolo Pellegrin's coverage of the bombardment of Beirut in 2006, to Antoine D'Agata's family photos, M3 is a visceral plunge into the photographer's psyche.
