America in Crisis, the exhibition collaboration between Magnum and the Saatchi Gallery, London that runs until April 2022, has been covered by a number of outlets, including CNN, AnOther, Creative Review, Amateur Photographer and The Guardian.

The Economist has published photos of the aftermath of the civil unrest in Almaty, Kazakhstan taken by Emin Özmen earlier this month.
