The International Center of Photography, the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture, continues its designated “Year of Social Change” with Magnum Manifesto, which celebrates the 70th anniversary of the renowned Magnum Photos collective.

Premiering at the ICP Museum, the landmark exhibition underscores ICP’s long- standing connection to concerned photography and the social and historic impact of the medium as a whole.

Organized by curator Clément Chéroux in collaboration with photography historian Clara Bouveresse and ICP Associate Curator Pauline Vermare, Magnum Manifesto offers an examination of the history of the second half of the 20th century through the lenses of 75 masters, providing a new and insightful perspective on the contribution of these photographers to our collective visual memory.

The wide-ranging exhibition traces the ideas and ideals behind the founding and development of the legendary cooperative, created by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Maria Eisner, George Rodger, Chim (David Seymour), and Rita and William Vandivert in 1947.
