Magnum Photos: Inside Out
10:15am – 5:30pm
The Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute
at Hunter College
47– 49 East 65th Street
New York, NY 10065
Organized on the occasion of the exhibition Framing Community: Magnum Photos, 1947 – Present, this forum discusses how Magnum photographers have shaped visual narratives within a world that is ever more fractured and uncertain. Across seven decades, Magnum members have questioned their position as outsiders looking in, negotiating religious and cultural diversity while seeking trust and shaping relationships with a wide range of communities. A working group of photographers, writers, and historians retraces significant moments of this cooperative photo agency, debating the meaning of these images as encounters with difference, and looking at their channels of communication and community outreach, from printed magazines to the contemporary digital landscape.
