A program at MoMA explores Magnum’s rich relationship to cinema through the lens of travelogues and art films, featuring artists who use moving images as an extension or counterpart to their photographic work to develop personal and auteurist storytelling.
Expanding on the agency’s transatlantic history, ‘Beyond the Frame’ spotlights work centered on Africa, Latin America, the US, and Europe, from the 1960s to the present. Photojournalism, fiction, and avant-garde media are alternately at play in the diverse treatments of conflict, social issues, and everyday moments.
