Magnum 2020

A yearbook of sorts, Magnum 2020 was born out of a year like no other; one which challenged the collective to find new ways of documenting experiences as countries locked down and people stayed home to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. It was also a year of reckoning for the agency, demanding reflection on the structures of power that have shaped the world for generations. Global protest against racism, the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, Ethiopia’s civil war and a divisive U.S. presidential election are just some of the stories that dominated the headlines and are featured here. In the foreword, Magnum President Olivia Arthur asks: “Was [2020] the end of something? The start of something else? Or merely a blip in an increasingly chaotic and fast-changing world?”

In Our Time

The World as seen by Magnum Photographers

Magnum’s archives are a repository of the masterpieces of photography for the past half-century. From the grandly historic to the poignantly human, from battlefield violence to the gentle pleasures of peace, “In Our Time” captures the past fifty years of the world in over three hundred memorable photographs.

As the distinguished historian William Manchester explains in his provocative text that accompanies the images, the book is a distinctive blend of reporting and art that inevitably engages the heart and mind of the viewer. Each picture is a comment upon our experience of the twentieth century. Not since the landmark photographic exhibition “The Family of Man” have so many brilliant photographs documented such a range of human experience and so subtle a marriage of technical proficiency and moral commitment.
