Magnum Foundations hits Photoville 2012!
The Magnum Foundation participated in Photoville, a seven-day photography festival on the Brooklyn Waterfront. MF transformed two shipping containers into unique home-like galleries to enforce the project themes featured. MF brought together Bruce Gilden’s No Place Like HOme: Foreclosures in America documenting the lives devastated by the recent housing crisis; and Sim Chi Yin’s Rat Tribe, exposing the world of Beijing’s migrants living underground. MF’s involvement in Photoville was made possible through the generous support of the Compton Foundation, Open Society Institute, and Panta Rhea Foundation.
