Founded by Robert Capa, David Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and George Rodger in the May of 1947, Magnum Photos and their ace photographers have left no stone unturned in stimulating our visual memory through their lens. The potted historical photographs are a witness to some of the major events of the last 70 years and are proof enough of the magnificence of this esteemed agency.

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the iconic Magnum Photos and with it, brings along a plethora of memories of the era gone by. Hosting a series of exhibitions and events across the globe, Magnum Photos has given us a reason to cherish the times and re-live the moments that are now nothing more than a reminiscence.

Let us join in their celebration and take a visual walk through their memory book. The experience is nothing short of a treat to the eyes of photography mavens and amateurs alike.

Termed as "the greatest war photographer in the world" by The Picture Post, Robert Capa, then 25, wooed one and all with this immaculate talent and is celebrated worldwide for his contribution in the field of photography. 


He lived by the maxim "If your photographs aren't good enough, you're not close enough" and his body of work is a living proof of it.
