It is with great regret and profound sadness that I have to announce the passing of Martine Franck.
Martine was not only an incredibly talented photographer, she was also a dear friend and colleague to us, and an inspiration to many.
Magnum has lost a point of reference, a lighthouse, and one of our most influential and beloved members with her death.
Her wisdom, wit and intelligence will be missed immensely by all of us.
