    03:42

    from Leica Camera / Added

    A core principal which framed the establishment of Magnum Photos in 1947 was the belief that photographers should have a point of view in their imagery that transcended any formulaic recording of contemporary events. This tradition continues today with the new series of photographic essays being produced by Magnum and Leica. Burning curiosity breeds evocative expression and it is precisely this spirit which Magnum and Leica will be supporting through this new agreement to create and publish new multimedia essays that will take a deeper look into the stories behind the photographs. The stories will cover new works by Magnum photographers addressing contemporary themes as well as investigations into the archives of photographers career-long obsessions to share Magnum photographer's individual journeys and unique ways of storytelling. The voice on this movie is that of Alice George, former head of Magnum. New stories will be presented on online at http://www.leica-camera.com, http://www.lfi-online.de and http://inmotion.magnumphotos.com/.

      Legendary anti-war photographer and author of Viet Nam Inc, Philip Jones Griffiths, gives the interview of a lifetime only 48 hours before he died in at his home in London on March 19, 2008. With a voice impassioned by courage and enriched by his legacy of love for people and for taking real pictures of real people, Philip imparts his final words of wisdom on the subject of photography and sexuality. Rare interviews with iconic photographers and people who loved him bring the most eloquent and clear headed anti-war photographer back to life. This movie is an hommage to being real in a time when documentary photography has fallen off the pedestal. This is the way and these are the words that matter.

        Gilles Peress has intransigently documented the darkest chapters of modern history, from the Troubles in Northern Ireland to the mass graves in Bosnia and Rwanda. In 1979, he went to Iran to photograph the revolution at its height, during the hostage crisis at the US embassy in Tehran. He captured the chaos and the contrasts between the various political and religious circles of influence, the turmoil in the cities, but also everyday scenes of trivia, irony or violence.

          The panel discussion continues with some questions from the audience. Topics discussed include where the initial funding for taking on a project of this manner originates, how the experience of photographing this subject matter personally affects the subject, its environment, and the photographer. The main topic of the discussion is how important funding is for this kind of work- without being able to raise the necessary costs, projects like these would not exist. The discussion continues on the Global Fund organization specifically, its functioning and reach out before Mark Lubell makes conclusive remarks. You can watch the entire panel discussion divided in four different clips on our multimedia page and vimeo account. Coinciding with the release of the book Access to Life (Aperture, Magnum Photos and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, 2009), Aperture and The New School presented a compelling panel discussion on April 22, 2009, with artists and photojournalists Gilles Peress and Kristen Ashburn; former picture editor of Time magazine MaryAnne Golon; and moderator Fred Ritchin, Associate Chair of the Department of Photography and Imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and Director of PixelPress. This event is part of the series Confounding Expectations: Photography in Context presented in collaboration with Vera List Center for Art and Politics and Parsons the New School for Design. For the past 25 years, the AIDS pandemic has inflicted excruciating pain upon humanity, having ravaged the lives of millions of people around the world. Over the past few years, however, a quiet global revolution has enabled millions infected by HIV to live healthy lives through the free antiretroviral treatment program initiated by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In Access to Life, eight of the world’s leading photojournalists, all members of Magnum Photos, follow thirty individuals in nine countries before, and four months after, they began the antiretroviral treatment, documenting the transformative effect on their bodies, their lives, and the lives of their families. This dream team of photographers was assigned to the following countries: Jonas Bendiksen (Haiti), Jim Goldberg (India), Alex Majoli (Russia), Steve McCurry (Vietnam), Paolo Pellegrin (Mali), Gilles Peress (Rwanda), Eli Reed (Peru), and Larry Towell (South Africa and Swaziland). These powerful images reveal the patients’ complex struggle against the disease with great subtlety and hope.

                  Gilles Peress a documenté avec intransigeance les pages les plus sombres de l’histoire contemporaine, de la guerre civile en Irlande du Nord aux charniers de la Bosnie et du Rwanda. En 1979, il part en Iran photographier la révolution qui bat son plein, au moment de la prise d’otages à l’ambassade des Etats-Unis à Téhéran. Il saisit le chaos et les contrastes des différentes mouvances politiques et religieuses en présence, l’effervescence des villes, mais aussi des scènes du quotidien, anodines, ironiques ou brutales. Exposition à voir du 17 septembre au 30 novembre au musée de l'Elysée.
