SUPPORTING NEW PRODUCTION
Since 2010, Magnum Foundation has made more than 250 direct grants to photographers.Through production funds and project development assistance, we support both emerging and recognized artists at various stages of their processes.
We work with an international committee of nominators to ensure we are inviting proposals from people whose authorship is underrepresented within the field of documentary photography. Over 60% of grantees are from outside the US and Western Europe, with emphasis on photographers working within their own communities.
Selected projects engage with a range of styles, from classic reportage to more conceptual frameworks, and explore new visual approaches, such as collaborating with other disciplines or experimenting with emerging technologies.
