On the occasion of its 69th Annual General Meeting, Magnum Photos has nominated Matt Stuart to the agency. Another candidate nominated during the meetings that took place from June 23 to 26 in London, was Diana Markosian. Former nominees Bieke Depoorter and Jérôme Sessini have now become full Magnum members.
Born in 1974, Matt Stuart grew up in Harrow, a district in the north west of London. Stuart has spent practically every day since 1996 wandering through the streets of the British capital. He is a member of in-PUBLIC, an international street photography association. His first photo book, All that life can afford appeared this year.
An interview about his book appeared in LFI 5/2016, and a comprehensive portfolio of Stuart’s work can be found in the M Magazine No. 2.
