History

"Magnum Photos" is the online database of the Magnum Photos agency.
This international agency was created in 1947 by four photographers (Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour). Its offices are in London (United Kingdom), New York (United States of America) and Paris (France).
The online database gives access to the digital formats of the Magnum photographers' works, which are physically kept in different offices.
