While last year marked the 70th year since the inception of Magnum Photos, an exhibition celebrating its legacy will continue to travel across 2018.

Magnum Manifesto: Magnum Photographers is a landmark exhibition designed to celebrate 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, this exhibition, based on an original idea of 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.

The exhibition is a co-production between ICP and Magnum Photos, based on an original idea by Clément Chéroux. The accompanying book is published by Thames & Hudson and Contrasto. Exhibition  organized by Contrasto, Rome.
