Ian Berry, MagnumTIME  “I met several photographers and they all gave me advice as to how Magnum worked and what I should do, but the one piece of advice I always remember was from Elliott Erwitt. We sat down as we always did in the bistro down below, and I sort of asked Elliott what advice he would give me; and he thought for a moment and he said, ‘I’d only give you one piece of advice: never give away the copyright.” And I think that was the most valuable piece of advice I got, which I stuck to throughout, I’ve never given away the copyright on anything I’ve done, even corporate work, I still keep the copyright.” - Ian Berry, MagnumTime Interview, Salisburg, UK, 2011
