The Magnum Expression Award




Although the non-commercial principles upon which Magnum is founded are still tested today, its archive of over one million photographs continues to grow. Working on individual projects for years, resisting trends and sensationalism, the members of Magnum are still considered the premier photographers in the world. "Magnum owes its survival as a loose coalition of intensely individual image-makers to its capacity to keep itself open to the new and unexpected. The fact that young photographers still want to associate themselves with everything Magnum signifies is a testament to its enduring vitality. A great tradition is alive-because it is being reinvented." - Michael Ignatieff

"Vive la revolution permanente." -co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson
