Magnum Photos, Leica Sign Agreement to Collaborate

Magnum Photos, Leica Sign Agreement to Collaborate

Leica Cameras AG and Magnum Photos International have always had a shared history together, with 1947 Magnum Photos founders Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour capturing decisive historical moments with their Leicas.

Now, Magnum and Leica have agreed to collaborate on a series of projects that continue their longstanding dedication to independent documentary photography. Alfred Schopf, CEO Leica Camera AG, and Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen, President of Magnum Photos International Inc., signed that agreement in Solms, Germany.

Beginning in the Spring of 2011, Leica will sponsor the creation of a series of independently produced multimedia essays by Magnum photographers that will take a deeper look into the stories behind the photographs. The work will highlight the personal journeys and insatiable curiosity of Magnum photographers. Leica and Magnum will publish the stories online at www.leica-camera.com.
