Magnum Photos Inside Out, a one-day event, held on Friday, October 27th at The Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College.

“Organized on the occasion of the exhibition Framing Community: Magnum Photos, 1947 – Present, this forum discusses how Magnum photographers have shaped visual narratives within a world that is ever more fractured and uncertain. Across seven decades, Magnum members have questioned their position as outsiders looking in, negotiating religious and cultural diversity while seeking trust and shaping relationships with a wide range of communities. A working group of photographers, writers, and historians retraces significant moments of this cooperative photo agency, debating the meaning of these images as encounters with difference, and looking at their channels of communication and community outreach, from printed magazines to the contemporary digital landscape.”

Photographic artists include  Nadya Bair, Jennifer Bajorek, Chris Boot, Bieke Depoorter, Reiner Leist, Kristen Lubben, Alia Malek, Susan Meiselas, Fred Ritchin, Carole Naggar, Howard Singerman, David Levi Strauss, Peter van Agtmael
