In 1947, following the aftermath of the Second World War, four pioneering photographers founded a now legendary alliance: The Magnum Photos agency.

Magnum Photos represents some of the world’s most renowned photographers, sharing a vision to chronicle world events, people, places and culture with a powerful narrative that defies convention, redefines history and transforms lives. Magnum Manifesto is an essential collection of the agency’s most significant and enduring images.

Featuring group and individual projects, the exhibition includes magazine spreads, newspaper articles, excerpts from books, and other rarely seen material, putting some of the world’s most recognisable images in a creative context. The exhibition captures over 70 years of history and presents the greatest events of the era alongside the more commonplace moments of everyday life.
