Shown across fifty screens at the Fulton Center in Lower Manhattan this digital exhibition showcases over 300 images from the early reportage work of Magnum’s founding fathers, including Robert Capa and David Seymour, to contemporary, personal visions of Magnum’s new generation photographers such as Olivia Arthur and Peter van Agtmael.

The display highlights the continued importance of photography as both a journalistic tool and form of self-expression. In partnership with Westfield.
