As in an extraordinary and unusual story, the gaze of the famous photographers of the Magnum Photos agency explores cycling, one of the most popular and loved sports ever. The journey in stages starts from the photographs taken by Robert Capa in 1939 up to this day, through the lens of Alex Majoli.
Selected from the huge Magnum archive, the photographs thus show the best reportages on the world of cycling and are testimonials to the characteristics common to the work of these photographers: the encounter between the artistic spirit and reportage, where the eye is always centered on the human dimension.
