The Museum of Photography, Seoul will bring out the exhibition “Magnum’s First”, organized by Magnum Photos.
In fact, the exhibition has its own story. The original name of “Magnum’s First” was “Gesichter der Zeit.” Rediscovered in an Innsbruck cellar in 2006, the first Magnum’s group exhibition was initially presented in five Austrian cities between June 1955 and February 1956. After months of complex restoration work, the original 83 prints are now available for presentation.
Presented in the exhibition are for example, one of the most important series by Henri Cartier-Bresson, 18 photographs of Mahatma Gandhi’s last moments and his cremation. The show also introduces vintage prints by pioneers of photojournalism, Werner Bischof, Robert Capa, Ernst Haas, Erich Lessing, Jean Marquis, Inge Morath and Marc Riboud.
