The Next Generation

Check out Judith H. Dobrzynski’s latest post on The Daily Beast,  Magnum: The Next Generation. Three of the photographers are featured below. I’ve included an excerpt below.

The legendary photography collective Magnum returns to its Parisian roots with a new gallery and an exhibition celebrating its photographers of tomorrow.

Magnum Photos, the celebrated photojournalism cooperative founded in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David “Chim” Seymour and George Rodger, returned to its Parisian Left Bank roots last week: It opened a new gallery steps off the Boulevard Saint-Germain-des-Pres, just around the corner from Café de Flore and Brasserie Lipp.

The first exhibit showcases works by photographers who joined the exclusive collective after 2000, along with some vintage works. And while Magnum photographers have always produced photos with a social comment, the newer pieces are rawer, more powerful, in the same way that much journalism these days has grown more opinionated.
