Magnum Photos at 70

A year to celebrate photography and our community

6th February 1947: four photographers, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour, toasted the founding of what would become the world’s most influential artist collective over a celebratory magnum of champagne in the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. In the past 70 years, 92 photographers have contributed to the story of Magnum and today, 49 photographer members continue to chronicle the world, interpreting its people, events and issues through visual storytelling.

This year, Magnum Photos will celebrate 70 years of contribution to photography and world history with the launch of a special anniversary program celebrating our historic legacy, our community, and our contemporary photographic practices: public events, exhibitions – notably “Magnum Manifesto” (opening at International Centre of Photography) and a book published by Thames & Hudson – new photographic projects and a series of exclusive digital launches.
