Photographers will collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to produce in-depth and experimental projects on religion.
In our current environment of increased sectarian conflict, it is more important than ever to provide well developed, nuanced perspectives on the many roles religion plays in contemporary society. Photographers will collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to produce in-depth and experimental projects on religion. Each project team will receive a production grant of up to $18,000. Additionally, teams will have access to an advisory of experts and participate in a project development lab in New York.
Magnum Foundation is working with The Revealer: A Review of Religion and Media, NYU’s Center for Media Culture and History, and The Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Columbia University's School of Journalism. Support for this pilot initiative is generously provided by the The Henry Luce Foundation, which seeks to bring important ideas to the center of American life, strengthen international understanding, and foster innovation and leadership in academic, policy, religious, and art communities.
