James Dean

The 1955 portrait of James Dean is another of the best-known images in the Magnum archive, shot in rainy Times Square in New York by Dennis Stock. "Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually." - Henri Cartier-Bresson

 

Michael Dell, chief of computer firm Dell, has acquired the print archive of Magnum Photos, widely considered to be the world's most valuable photographic collection.
