Magnum Showcase: Silence
February 10, 2014
Magnum photographer Chris Steele-Perkins has chosen Naomi Goddard as the winner of the Magnum Showcase competition for his brief on 'Silence'.

Goddard's project observes how food culture enforces social habits, visualising how our modern times are transforming the traditions of eating, affecting social attributes of food consumption and perhaps resulting in an individualistic society.

Chris Steele-Perkins said "It was a surprising idea, which I did not think would work when I read the “pitch”, and it combined both approaches, of people and of atmosphere".

Magnum Showcase is an opportunity run by Magnum and IdeasTap, providing young photographers with an opportunity to promote their work and obtain critical feedback.
