MAGNUM PHOTOS is a cooperative wholly owned by its photographer-members. The independence this allows is reflected in the spirit with wich subjects are chosen and treated. Magnum photographs are famous for their journalistic and aesthetic qualities.
Through its four editorial offices in Paris, New York, London and Tokyo and a network of fifteen sub-agents, Magnum Photos provides photographs to the press worldwide.
At the heart of this activity is a concern to encourage the photographers to carry out their individual projects and to act as sensitive witnesses to world events.
The work of Magnum photographers reaches its audience both through the world press and in books and exhibitions.
Created in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bressson, George Rodger and DavidSeymour, Magnum Photos today has 60 members.
