Magnum Photos 75 Years
This year Magnum Photos celebrates its 75th anniversary. For 75 years, through a diverse array of individual points of view, Magnum photographers have expressed a unique vision of the world around them. Whatever the driving force of the photographer’s motivations, the stories have always been told and the visions always conveyed, through the lens of subjective expression, from the inside looking out.
This exhibition turns the lens around in order to focus on the Magnum photographers and their stories. It examines the ways in which the photographers, the agency, and the medium of documentary photography, have evolved over time. It provides a valuable and fascinating insight into the process and historical background to the making of many of the finest photographs of the 20th and 21st centuries.
