“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.
