A contemporary look at Magnum Photos on its 70th anniversary

A contemporary look at Magnum Photos on its 70th anniversary, this landmark exhibition celebrates the renowned photo agency created by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and Chim (David Seymour) in 1947. Tracing the ideas and ideals behind the founding and development of Magnum Photos, this exhibition, based on an original idea of Clément Chéroux, explores the history of the second half of the 20th century through the lenses of 75 masters, providing a new and insightful perspective on the contribution of these photographers to our collective visual memory.

The exhibition is a co-production between ICP and Magnum Photos, based on an original idea by Clément Chéroux. The accompanying book is published by Thames & Hudson and Contrasto.
Exhibition organized by Contrasto, Rome.
