July 9th: “What Matters: Documentary Photography and Social Change” at Stanford University

From an e-blast just in from Andy Patrick, Founder, FiftyCrows and CEO of liveBooks:


Documentary Photography and Social Change

Thursday, July 9, 2009
7:30 – 9:00pm
Annenberg Auditorium in the Nathan Cummings Art Building, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA
Free and Open to All

Photo essays have proven their ability to not only document but actually change the course of human events. If that is the case, shouldn’t we be searching for the essential photo-essays of our time, the pictures that will spark public discourse and instigate the type of real-world reforms that engaged citizens in the past? What Matters, a new book edited by David Elliot Cohen, attempts to answer this question with eighteen important photo-essays by this generation’s preeminent photojournalists. These essays poignantly address the big issues of our time: climate change, oil addiction, the inequitable distribution of global wealth and other current problems. The book ends with “What You Can Do,” an appendix that offers hundreds of ways to be part of the solution to the compelling challenges we now face.

“Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson

VERVE Gallery of Photography is pleased to present Magnum, our summer exhibition. Magnum features a collection of renowned images produced by photographers from the illustrious cooperative Magnum Photos. Magnum Photos is a member-owned cooperative known for photographs that chronicle the world, its peoples, events and personalities.

Magnum Photos was formed by a small group of photographers including Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour at the end of World War II. Each founding photographer had been scarred by the war, and they shared a collective desire to see and photograph the post-war world, as well as to document the changes that resulted from World War II. Magnum Photos reflected the founders’ fierce independence in both personal and professional realms. This idiosyncratic mix of reporter and artist continues to define Magnum Photos as its members report what they observe of the world in a manner that reflects both a powerful individual vision and superb creative achievement.
