Magnum Photos Now—Photobooks: History, Future, Form. The Future of Photobooks

Date Jun 21, 2017
Type Panel

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, ICP hosted a special one-day photobook symposium with Martin Parr, Fred Ritchin, Susan Meiselas, and other Magnum photographers, critics, and publishers. Panels covered the history and future of photobooks, the photobook in relation to social and political conflict, and the trend of personal narratives invigorating the form.
