Just read this article on the 65th anniversary of Magnum. Nice to hear the thoughts on the current members on the relevance of the agency.

“Yes, there are issues in the market,” he says. “And we spent four days discussing these issues at Magnum, and when I got out I went to see Josef Koudelka’s images and it reminded me why I’m part of Magnum.

In the morning, you put a roll of film in your camera – today you don’t even have to do this with digital – you take to the streets, you come back home, edit your photographs and show them. It’s that simple.” – Abbas
