For the first time in its history, the iconic photography agency Magnum has opened its London office's resin print archive to three contemporary practitioners. Guided by the former Magnum Photos archivist Nick Galvin, historian and anthropologist Elizabeth Edwards, photographer Hannah Starkey and artist Uriel Orlow were invited to reinterpret how social, cultural and political inclinations have shaped the content of the archive.

Edwards, Starkey and Orlow chose 130 rarely seen photographs from68,000 prints, which collectively present an imperfect history of photography from 1940 - 2000. Edwards addresses how the experiences of people and their engagement with the world are inscribed in the photograph. Starkey's interest is in how the female perspective has resulted in a narrative linked across the decades, and Orlow teases out the blind spots of history in the margins of crisis.

Twenty-seven photographers whose work is presented in the exhibition include Abbas, Eve Arnold, Rene Burri, Elliott Erwitt, Stuart Franklin, Leonard Freed, David Hurn, Peter Marlow, Inge Morath, Martin Parr, Chris Steele-Perkins and David "Chim" Seymour.
