Several noted photographers who are part of the photography cooperative Magnum have worked on movie sets to film stars at work. Take a look at some of the photos by these noted professionals and get the details for the exhibit after the break.
Robert Capa was one of the founders of Magnum Photos. Together with David Seymour, George Rodger and Herni Cartier-Bresson, they established the cooperative in 1947. An upcoming exhibit, the Magnum Sul Set, is a collection of photos that several photographers shot over the years. The common concept of this exhibit is all the photos were taken on set. There are rare and intimate portraits of actors and actresses caught on film, including photos of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. The photos not only capture movie stars in action, they also show special behind-the-scene moments that we won’t see when watching the movies they starred in.
Here’s a look at some photos from the exhibition:

Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
