A working document, photographers’ contact sheets were not designed to be displayed, and many photographers are reluctant to exhibit them because, in a way, they expose their creative process. However, the exhibition Magnum Contact Sheets allows us to delve into the history behind some of the most iconic images of photojournalists of the Magnum agency, such as Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David ‘Chim’ Seymour, Werner Bischof, Marc Riboud, Eve Arnold, René Burri, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Bruno Barbey, Hiroji Kubota, Steve McCurry, Jean Gaumy, Paolo Pellegrin and Cristina García Rodero.
