Symposium explores "Magnum Photos into the Digital Age"

Magnum Symposium

Complementing the Ransom Center's fall exhibition is the symposium "Magnum Photos into the Digital Age" on October 25–27. The symposium brings together photographers, curators, and historians to discuss the ways in which Magnum Photos has continually reinvented itself from the moment of its founding.

Twelve Magnum photographers, including Christopher Anderson, Bruno Barbey, Thomas Dworzak, Jim Goldberg, Josef Koudelka, Susan Meiselas, Mark Power, Eli Reed, Moises Saman, Alec Soth, and Chris Steele-Perkins, as well as Magnum CEO Giorgio Psacharopulo, participate in panels with a focus on the cooperative's evolution and future. The symposium keynote address will be delivered on Friday, October 25 by Fred Ritchin, Professor of Photography and Imaging at New York University's (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts and co-director of Pixel Press and the NYU/Magnum Foundation Photography and Human Rights educational program.

Paid registration is required, and seating is limited.
