The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has resulted in most Magnum photographers being restricted in their movements.

As part of a broader photographer-led response, a new series, Quarantine Conversations, will see Magnum photographers in frank, and unedited dialogues about work, current affairs, and everything in-between.

The pairings for these conversations will be made by lottery, and this second iteration sees Stuart Franklin asking three key questions of Mark Power. The pair discuss restlessness, solitude, togetherness, having a wife as a doctor, a daughter with a canceled degree show, reading and upcoming books.

You can see the first conversation in the series, between Newsha Tavakolian and Rafal Milach, here. Watch all of the Quarantine Conversations here.
