70 YEARS OF CORRESPONDENCES: MAGNUM PHOTOS AND PICTO 1950-2020
Curated by Carole Naggar
RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY is pleased to announce the exhibition 70 YEARS OF CORRESPONDENCES: MAGNUM PHOTOS AND PICTO 1950-2020, curated by Photography historian Carole Naggar. A collaborative partnership with MAGNUM PHOTOS and PICTO, this exhibition is a celebration of the seventy-year partnership between two powerhouse institutions in the photography world. Conceived in three parts – YESTERDAY, TODAY, and TOMORROW – this exhibition is a survey of this continuous collaboration since 1950 and will be presented through the work of nineteen photographers, and more than 100 prints (vintage and modern).
MAGNUM PHOTOS was founded in 1947 in Paris by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, and David ‘Chim’ Seymour, in response to the Second World War and the need to observe and report the state of the world in its wake. Today, their agency counts 89 international members (past and present).
PICTO was established in 1950 by Pierre and France Gassmann, and they produced works for Magnum’s founders such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Chim, and other notable artists including William Klein, Willy Ronis, Robert Doisneau, and Edouard Boubat. Photography is an innovative medium that both records and engages with history and change. This exhibition celebrates leaders in the field and offers a journey through the medium over the past 70 years, inviting us to imagine its future. 70 YEARS OF CORRESPONDENCES: MAGNUM PHOTOS AND PICTO 1950-2020 will be on view at RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY, 154 Ludlow Street, from October 29th through December 20, 2020.
