New Blood showcases the work of six photographers who have recently joined the ranks of Magnum Photos as nominees. The exhibition includes work by Matt Black, Sohrab Hura, Lorenzo Meloni, Max Pinckers, Newsha Tavakolian, and Carolyn Drake. Collectively, the works demonstrate the diverse visual language of the photographers working both in traditional photojournalism and a more art-based practice.

Featuring in the Magnum Print Room show is Matt Black’s The Geography of Poverty series, which combines geotagged photographs with census data to map and document poor communities; Carolyn Drake’s Two Rivers follows the Amu Darya and Syr Daryarivers from their endpoints to the source; Sohrab Hura’s distinctive, dream-like, black and white photographs from the series Life is Everywhere; Recent photographs by Lorenzo Meloni taken in Yemen, Syria and Libya; Max Pinckers’ theatrical take on documentary; and work from Newsha Tavakolian’s series Blank Pages of an Iranian Photo Album are be on display in the London space.

The London Print Room is open Wednesday to Friday, 11.30AM to 4PM.
