Happy Birthday MAGNUM PHOTOS! 60 Years Young Today

On this day in 1947, Magnum Photos was founded. There is a wonderful slide show on the agency’s website highlighting 100 of the iconic images made by the Magnum members over these 60 years.

The Magnum Festival, celebrating 60 years as an independent agency and artistic cooperative, will take place during the month of June in New York City. “The Festival will embrace the various aspects of the past 60 years of documentary as well as promote the importance for responsible documentary work in the future.” Through a series of city-wide events, the Magnum Festival will highlight photography, film and journalism. A website detailing events will be launched soon; I’ll post its URL as soon as it becomes available.
