Il volume raccoglie i servizi fotografici che hanno reso celebri venti grandissimi fotografi Magnum, e che hanno rappresentato una svolta nelle carriere di ciascuno di loro.
Ideata da François Hebel per la manifestazione “Rencontres d’Arles” nel 2012, Magnum. La première fois rappresenta un’antologia di scatti unici, che dagli anni trenta arrivano all’inizio del nuovo millennio.
Autori delle fotografie sono Abbas, Christopher Anderson, Olivia Arthur, Bruno Barbey, Robert Capa, Chien-Chi Chang, Bruce Gilden, Harry Gruyaert, David Alan Harvey, Thomas Hoepker, Richard Kalvar, Peter Marlow, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Eli Reed, Jacob Aue Sobol, Larry Towell, Alex Webb.

François Hébel, who then was the Director of Rencontres photographiques d’Arles, requested Magnum photographers to recall their “first time” – namely that delicate moment of transition that “distinguished” them and that marked an actual turning-point in their artistic careers.
The Magnum. La première fois volume has been inspired by that instant and recalls – thanks to the series of photographs by Abbas, Christopher Anderson, Olivia Arthur, Bruno Barbey, Cornell Capa, Robert Capa, Chien-Chi Chang, Bruce Gilden, Harry Gruyaert, David Alan Harvey, Thomas Hoepker, Richard Kalvar, Peter Marlow, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Eli Reed, Jacob Aue Sobol, Larry Towell and Alex Webb – the particular moment in which artists distance themselves from their teachers and come up with a language, an aesthetic form and a grammar that are theirs and theirs alone. The moment in which their concept of photography, together with their commitment, acquire meaning and individuality for the first time.
