Magnum is possibly the world’s most famous photography agency. Their desire for excellence is demonstrated in their membership application process. Out of the hundreds of photographers between one and four have been selected per year for the last five years. Once selected you have another chance two years down the road to present another portfolio to apply for ‘Associate Membership’. It is voted upon by the members who also own the agency. When chosen you then two years later apply for ‘Full Membership’ in front of the board again. If you pass this level, you are in for life.
They are having a print sale right now of some of their top photographers work. Here are just a few of the signed prints available from now until June 10th in the Decisive Moments.
