Magnum Photographers - Early Magnum


Composed of work by photographers associated with the agency in its first 10 years (1947 — 1957), Early Magnum includes all four founders: Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour, George Rodger and Robert Capa; series' by Werner Bischof, Leonard Freed and Dennis Stock, as well as individual images by Eve Arnold, Rene Burri, Cornell Capa, Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Erich Hartmann, Burt Glinn, Inge Morath and Wayne Miller. The show's content is diverse: ranging from social documentary and portraiture to more exploratory approaches to the medium. Produced by a group of focused individuals, united by their shared independence and pursuit of their subject matter, this work has grown in some cases to iconic status. This exhibition is a treasure trove of twentieth century photojournalism, demonstrating the richness of the early Magnum archive.
