For over forty years, Stuart Franklin has combined a bold documentary style with strong personal vision. In 1989, he took his acclaimed, life-changing photograph of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, where a demonstration for freedom ended in massacre. It was first published in Time Magazine, earning him a World Press Photo Award. Franklin has photographed some of the most significant news events of the 21st Century and explored landscapes around the world. In his words, his practice “repaints the boundaries of documentary to create a sense of freedom”.
The selection of works on view, which spans both colour and black and white, examines Franklin’s deep ecological concerns. He joined Magnum Photos in 1985 and became a full member in 1989.
