Join us at Art Bermondsey Project Space for an exciting new exhibition in conjunction with Magnum Photos. On the occasion of Magnum’s 70th anniversary, Magnum Retold celebrates the powerful legacy of documentary storytelling throughout the agency’s history through to the present day. In the exhibition, we see new work by a selection of Magnum photographers, as they revisit some of the most iconic photo series from the agency’s long and varied history.
On the occasion of Magnum’s 70th anniversary Magnum Retold celebrates the powerful legacy of documentary storytelling throughout the agency’s history through to the present day. Retold is a series that reflects both the importance and beauty of stories shot by Magnum’s earliest photographers and their ongoing resonance not only for Magnum photographers but for all of us in today’s fast-changing world.
Asked to consider an archival story that had influenced, or inspired their practice, contemporary Magnum photographers each chose a story that meant something to them personally or on a topical subject that they wished to re-visit today.
In the exhibition we see new work by Olivia Arthur referencing the Children of Europe project shot by founder David Seymour in the years after The Second World War; Thomas Dworzak, and journalist Julius Strauss, retraced the steps of Robert Capa and writer John Steinbeck through Russia, Ukraine and Georgia in A Russian Journal; Thomas Hoepker pays tribute to the poetic work of Sergio Larrian in Valparaiso; and Moises Saman, with Marco Bischof, followed in the final footsteps of Werner Bischof as he was documenting life in the Peruvian mountains when he tragically died in a road accident.
