Each year, the Magnum Foundation supports emerging photographers from around the world with project-specific grants. The chosen recipients of this year’s Magnum Foundation Fund are Laia Abril, Stephen Ferry, Rahima Gambo, Brendan Hoffman, Heba Khalifa, Billy H.C. Kwok, Esther Mbabazi, Nadege Mazars, Robert Pluma and Pedro Silveira. Each of their proposed projects is characterised by an innovative, relevant and, most of all, independent approach to conveying visual narratives.
With the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation, photographers Nadege Mazars, Robert Pluma and Pedro Silveira will be able to complete their projects about the complex nexus between religion and migration. This year, the Magnum Foundation has been able to provide a total of 130,000 US dollars in direct funding for photographic projects, thanks to close collaborations with various partners who share the Foundation’s commitment to expanding the vocabulary of visual storytelling.
