At 19 years old, Jonas Bendiksen worked as an intern at Magnum Photos' London office, where he made tea, answered phones and fell in love with the photographic archive. Today, he is a full member of the agency and produces work for some of the most esteemed publications in the world. Fascinated by liminal communities and the people they comprise, Bendiksen's work has taken him from scattered former Soviet republics to some of the world's fast-growing urban slums. His sharply evocative images explore themes of society, faith and identity with unsparing honesty.
