Magnum Photos Live Lab 2017

To celebrate Magnum Photos ‘70th anniversary’ the agency invited Magnum photographers Olivia Arthur, Carl de Keyzer and Mark Power to work alongside each other in a two-week residency inside the Magnum Print Room, responding to the local area of Clerkenwell. The resulting work produced an exhibition which stands inside the studio as a celebration of and an inquiry into the medium of photography and the creative process of making.

Present Plus was commissioned to direct and produce a short documentary of the residency. We had the privilege of following and interviewing each of the three photographers closely throughout their two weeks at Magnum, as well as the core Magnum team involved. The finished result is an 8 minute exploration into the photographer’s minds and thoughts surrounding their finished work.

Special thanks to Joseph Dunn, Focus 24, Carlos Carneiro & Sorenious Bonk.
