On March 1, 2018, Fujifilm and Magnum Photos invited guests to the opening night of the “HOME” exhibition in New York City.
The highly anticipated event, which took place at Milk Gallery in New York City, saw over 360 VIP guests in attendance. These included collaborators and visitors from all over the world, who gathered to celebrate this landmark project dedicated to exploring the idea of “HOME”.
The “HOME” project consolidates the work of 16 Magnum Photos photographers into a collection that will engage audiences from a broad range of cultures. Visitors to Milk Gallery were among the first to experience the carefully curated flow of the exhibition, designed to complement the collection’s capacity to explore and document human lives, while inspiring curiosity about the world and its inhabitants.
The evening marked the start of an epic journey for “HOME,” which will now travel from NYC to London, Paris, Tokyo, Cologne, Italy, and more. The “HOME” collaboration, which includes fine art photography and photojournalism, will be accompanied by a “HOME” photobook offering an alternative way to enjoy the collection, available for purchase both on-site at each exhibition and at Magnum Photos online store.
The “HOME” project is the result of a partnership between Fujifilm and legendary photography agency Magnum Photos. Established in 1947, Magnum was the result of a collaboration between pioneering photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger, and David Seymour. Their alliance resulted in a chronicle of world events, people, places, and cultures. This continuous narrative, notable for its power to redefine history and transform our understanding of the world, continues to this day in the work of photojournalists, artists and storytellers.
