Magnum Photos  A photographic cooperative of great diversity and distinction owned by its photographer members.

@jacobauesobolnew is one of the judges for the first @portrait_of_humanity Award with @bjp1854, alongside fellow Magnum photographers @alessandra_sanguinetti and @newshatavakolian.
.
Portrait of Humanity is a new award, seeking to prove that there is more that unites us, than sets us apart. Founded on the concept of individuality, community and unity, we are inviting photographers of any level, to show us the world through their eyes, to capture the many faces of humanity, and to document the universal expressions of life; laughter, courage, moments of reflection, journeys to work, first hellos, last goodbyes, and everything in between.
.
Entries open today, and closes on December 11, 2018. For more information about the award and how to enter, please visit magnumphotos.com/events.

“These are some of the most important pictures I’ll ever take - but not because they are necessarily very interesting for others to see. This summer, when Bille arrived and Boe went from being our little baby to being a big sister, is one that I will never forget. I wonder what it will be like looking at them in 20 years. This time capsule from when Anna and I were young, and the kids were just two bundles of limitless potential.” - @Jonasbendiksen

“Streets are the stage of our life. In Italy, especially in the agricultural Italy I grew up in, women and men dress up to be looked at when walking down the street." - Ferdinando Scianna
.
The characteristic approach Scianna developed to photographing fashion drew heavily on his background as a documentarian of his home country, with Italian social traditions, religious iconography, and the concept of the matriarch as the head of the family coming together to shape his style. In fact, the more Scianna worked as a fashion photographer, the more he identified parallels between fashion and the Italian way of life. “In religious festivals in Sicily the costumes have a very important and theatrical role. It is very similar to fashion, they follow the same principles,” he notes.
.
We explore Ferdinando Scianna's fashion photography today on Magnum. Link in bio.

“It was a different way to do what I did before and would always do afterwards. I do not see any difference between my fashion photography and my work as a reporter.” - Ferdinando Scianna

“I always try to tell a story. I believe it is the world that gives meaning to fashion, not the other way around.”

Magnum photographer Wayne Miller was guided by a desire “to photograph mankind and explain man to man,” as he once put it. This perspective shaped his approach to documenting the array of subject-matter he explored throughout his career: from American soldiers in combat during World War II to the intimacies of his own family life.
.
On the centenary of Miller’s birth, we look back at his life’s work and the part he played in the evolution of photography at an important point in its history. Link in bio.

Wayne Miller was among the first photographers to enter the city of Hiroshima, where he documented the devastation inflicted by the atomic bomb in September 1945. He regarded the horror of war as a product of ignorance and was determined to use photography as a means to help dispel this.

To mark the centenary of Miller's birth, we look back on his life and work on magnumphotos.com today. Link in bio.
