Magnum Photographers on Vogue Italia
The late Magnum photographer Abbas has been included in Vogue Italia’s feature “Visionaries with Viewfinders”, chosen by writer and curator Simon Njami, who writes: “Despite the necessary distance one must maintain when performing such a job, besides the irony and absurdity he would denounce, he was above all a rare human being, always involved, always anxious to understand what could not be understood.”
In the same article James Wellford, an editor for National Geographic selected Magnum photographers Larry Towell and Thomas Dworzak. Wellford writes: “In the case of Ontarian Larry Towell and Bavarian Thomas Dworzak, two of the finest photographers chronicling our world, there is an extraordinary inquisitiveness and delicate engagement that thoughtfully illuminates people and ideas.”
