On Photojournalism: Going Behind the Story

Magnum Photographers

This series explores the means, methods and ethics of Magnum’s documentary photographers, delving into what it takes to create contemporary photojournalism. From immersive, long-form journalism where a photographer has embedded themselves into a place, often returning over and over for years, to the quick reaction of a photographer who happens to find themselves in the right location when an explosive event takes place, the work of Magnum Photographers enhances our understanding of the crucial news stories shaping our world. This is an insight into how some of these stories are made.
