In this landmark photography pand accompanying exhibition celebrating the 70th anniversary of Magum Photos, Clément Chéroux and Clara Bouveresse demonstrate how the cooperative owes its preeminence to the ability of its photographers to encompass and navigate the points between photography as art object and photography as documentary evidence.
Magnum Manifesto is organized into three parts: Part 1, Human Rights and Wrongs (1947-1968), views the Magnum archive through a humanist lens, focusing on postwar ideals of commonality and utopianism. Part 2, An Inventory of Differences (1969-1989), shows a world fragmenting, with a focus on subcultures, minorities, and outsiders. Part 3, Stories About Endings (1990-present day), charts the ways in which Magnum photographers have captured—and continue to capture—a world in flux and under threat.
