Magnum’s connection with the film world has continued to the present day and widened to include movie-makers and studios all over the world. The resulting on- and off-set photographs gathered together in this unique exhibition include intimate portraits of such screen legends as Marilyn Monroe, Ingrid Bergman, James Dean or Elizabeth Taylor, as well as outstanding film directors like Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Wells.

Selected from a collection of several hundreds of movie shoots in which Magnum photographers accompanied actors on and off set, and from several thousands of portraits of film stars and the film industry, this exhibition presents the Seventh Art in its manifold ways.
