Magnum Foundation was established by the photographers of Magnum Photos in 2007. Amidst the collapse of a media system that had traditionally supported documentary photography, Magnum Foundation was conceived to empower independent, long-form visual storytelling on social issues. Through production funds and project development assistance, we support both emerging and recognized artists at various stages of their processes. We work with an international committee of nominators to ensure we are inviting proposals from people whose authorship is underrepresented within the field of documentary photography.
