Magnum Cycling is a celebration of the great artists who have captured the personalities, emotions and human endurance of cycling. Compiled by Guy Andrew, founder and former editor of Rouleur magazine, the book presents a selection of striking imagery from the prestigious Magnum archive.
The accessibility of cycling and photography means they share interesting parallels, culturally and historically, and Magnum Cycling is set out in thematic chapters each featuring one ‘story’ of an iconic moment, event or scene. The Tour de France, track racing in the velodrome, winter training and the revelry of the fans and crowds all feature, with photographs by a variety of iconic photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Guy Le Querrec and Harry Gruyaert.
“Glorious… At its best, this fascinating collection of photographs captures something of that exquisite suffering.” The Telegraph , April 2016
