What is Magnum?

Magnum Photos is an international photographic cooperative. Owned by its photographer-members since its founding in 1947, this legendary collective has survived for decades by consistently redefining itself. This December, 25 Magnum photographers will gather in Miami to discuss their work and continue shaping the cooperative. While in Miami, the five prominent photographers listed above will also discuss their work during the lecture, which will take the form of a panel discussion. See
