Magnum in Motion: Photo Essays

September 12, Monday
Magnum Photos: Meeting with Photographers of the Legendary Agency19:00

Limited seating available, prior registration at is required

Magnum Photos, Leica Camera and Garage Center for Contemporary Culture are thrilled to present seven video essays created by Magnum’s photographers for the project Magnum in Motion.

The photo essays to be screened are:

M*A*S*H Iraq by Thomas Dworzak. As the United States military fights to gain stability in Iraq, doctors, nurses and medics are working on the front lines to keep the casualties down. Thomas Dworzak was embedded with the 44th Medcoms 50th and 1150th Medical unit.

The Taliban by Thomas Dworzak. The Taliban ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001. Its strict version of Islam allowed no photography or depiction of human or animal forms.

The Shipping Forecast by Mark Power. Intangible and mysterious, familiar yet obscure, The Shipping Forecast is broadcast four times a day on BBC Radio 4. Power's photographs are a response to the clash between the hope-filled pictures built up in his imagination since childhood and the harsh reality of the places he has since found in adulthood.

Niagara by Alec Soth. For Alec Soth, Niagara Falls is not merely a tourist destination but a platform that allows him to explore human emotions and the difficulty in sustaining the intense emotional peaks of new love and passion.

Satellites by Jonas Bendiksen. Between 1998 and 2005, Jonas Bendiksen traveled through the fringes of the former Soviet empire, exploring the oblique stories of half-forgotten enclaves and restless territories. Many of these places are quaintly obscure, but as he came to discover, they offer stark proof that the breakup of the Soviet Union is still a work in progress.

Double Happiness by Chien-Chi Chang. Marriage brokers recruit young Vietnamese women to come to Ho Chi Minh City, where they are viewed by groups of Taiwanese men. Within days of meeting, the couples will be married.

Georgian Spring by Gueorgui Pinkhassov. A reverie about Georgia – a place that has harbored the Argonauts, Prometheus and God.

All films will be presented in English.
