As part of its 70th-anniversary celebrations, Magnum Photos will open an exhibition devoted to 70 of its most iconic images at FotoDC.
From Leonard Freed’s iconic portrait of Martin Luther King being congratulated by waiting crowds after his acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize to Jean Gaumy’s photograph capturing veiled women training on the outskirts of Tehran, Magnum photographers have born witness to some of the most extraordinary events over the past 70 years.

The exhibition will be presented at FotoDC in Washington D.C. from November 11, 2017– November 19, 2017.
