Magnum Photos Now—Photobooks: History, Future, Form
Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 12:00amInternational Center of Photography
From Henri Cartier-Bresson’s creative partnership with the publisher Robert Delpire, to Alec Soth’s experimental publishing house Little Brown Mushroom, the photobook as a means of expressing a body of work has been a critical preoccupation of Magnum’s membership since the agency’s inception in 1947.
As part of Magnum’s 70th anniversary celebration and in conjunction with the ICP Museum exhibition Magnum Manifesto, join us for an exploration of photobooks with Martin Parr, Fred Ritchin, Susan Meiselas, and other Magnum photographers, critics, and publishers in this special one-day symposium.
Panels will cover the history and future of photobooks, the photobook in relation to social and political conflict, and the trend of personal narratives invigorating the form.
