  4. The Magnum Foundation participated in Photoville, a seven-day photography festival on the Brooklyn Waterfront. MF transformed two shipping containers into unique home-like galleries to enforce the project themes featured. MF brought together Bruce Gilden's No Place Like Home: Foreclosures in America documenting the lives devastated by the recent housing crisis; and Sim Chi Yin's Rat Tribe, exposing the world of Beijing's migrants living underground. MF's involvement in Photoville was made possible through the generous support of the Compton Foundation, Open Society Institute, and Panta Rhea Foundation.

The Magnum Foundation focuses on production and distribution of in-depth documentary projects; awards and grants to aspiring photojournalists; and initiatives to preserve the archives of independent photographers.

Mission

Established for educational, charitable and cultural purposes, the Magnum Foundation focuses on four program areas: production and distribution of in-depth documentary projects; awards and grants to aspiring photojournalists; initiatives to preserve the archives of independent photographers; and public service collaborations.

Company Overview

Four pioneering photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour, had the insight to claim their editorial independence by retaining ownership of their copyrights. Today’s photographers are seeking to build upon this pioneering legacy with a newly formed charitable organization, The Magnum Foundation (TMF). Launched in 2007, TMF is working to bring over half a century of historic and iconic photographs to the public and support the work of a new generation of documentary photographers.
