Magnum Photos photographers have produced some of the most memorable images of the last century. Founded in 1947, it was the first cooperative agency to be established and operated by photographers, thus insuring unprecedented creative, editorial, and economic independence. Drawing largely upon the vast collection of prints from the agency’s New York bureau, this exhibition investigates the evolution of Magnum Photos from print photojournalism to the digital age, revealing a global cooperative in continual flux.
Organized by Jessica S. McDonald and Roy L. Flukinger, the exhibition features approximately 300 works. The Magnum Photos collection was donated to the Ransom Center by Michael and Susan Dell, Glenn and Amanda Fuhrman, and John and Amy Phelan.
Ransom Center Galleries are open on Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended Thursday hours until 7 p.m. On Saturdays and Sundays the galleries are open from noon to 5 p.m. The galleries are closed on Mondays. Please note the Ransom Center will be closed on December 24, December 25, and January 1.
Beginning January 6, the Ransom Center Galleries will be closed until February 11, when the exhibition The World at War, 1914–1918 opens. The Gutenberg Bible and First Photograph remain on permanent display.
