Magnum photos – a new archive and some great photographers

Magnum photos  has a new archive. As one of its co-founders  Henri Cartier-Bresson  said , “Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually.

(note other founders include Robert CapaDavid “Chim” Seymour,George Rodger,William Vandivert,)
