Last month, the prestigious Magnum photo agency released a collection of selected photographs that captured the essence of the various uprisings that had happened in the recent decades.

Starting with the Algerian uprising in 1954 and culminating with the most recent Arab Spring, the collection, entitled Magnum Revolution: 65 Years of Fighting for Freedom, brings together hundreds of images taken by world-renowned photographers in various destinations around the globe, throughout the decades of revolution and fighting for freedom.

The history of revolution is as old as humanity; yet it is only since the invention of photography that we have been able to discern the realities of these conflicts from the distance of time. Starting with the most recent triumphs and tragedies of the Arab Spring and ending with the Hungarian uprising in 1956, this book brings together almost thirty revolutions documented by forty photographers in hundreds of color and black-and-white images that depict historic events from a human perspective. — About, Magnum Photos
