A contemporary look at Magnum Photos, curated on its 70th anniversary in 2017, this landmark exhibition celebrates the renowned photo agency created by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and Chim (David Seymour) in 1947.

Tracing the ideas and ideals behind the founding and development of Magnum Photos, curator Clément Chéroux explores the history of the second half of the 20th century through the lenses of 75 masters, providing a new and insightful perspective on the contribution of these photographers to our collective visual memory.

This exhibition is based on an original concept of Clément Chéroux and is a co-production of Magnum Photos and ICP New York, with support from Canon and Shirmer/Mosel.
