The Magnum Photos Home Exhibition will open for its second instalment in London. Featuring work of 16 Magnum photographers, the show is an exploration of what home means to each participant and is a unique insight into each of their personal styles and artistic voices.

“What is ‘home’? Instinctively, the image of a peaceful haven comes to mind. A cocoon where one feels secure, loved and understood–a nurturing and forgiving space. Home is sweet, ‘home is where the heart is’. Home is family. It is a mother tongue–or multiple languages; it is comfort food and familiar faces; a beloved pet. ‘Home’ is one’s quotidian life, and domesticity: the coziness of one’s living room, sofa, TV, books and memorabilia. ‘Home’ is a set of coordinates: a house, a street, a town, a state, a country, an apartment in the city, a cottage by the sea. ‘Home’ is where we were made. A place to return to, or to escape from. To some, it doesn’t exist in the physical world any longer: it is a memory. Home is within oneself.” – Pauline Vermare, Curator, Magnum Photos, New York
