Over the past six years—since announcing its first grants in 2009—the Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund has supported the work of 60 photographers, in 42 countries, to the tune of a total of over $500,000, with the funds helping photographers work on under-reported issues. The Foundation also offers an infrastructure of collaborators, partners, advisers, editors to help evolve and disseminate the anticipatory work they produce, that is both dynamic and effective.
This year’s selection of awardees are Massimo Berruti, Matt Black, Peter DiCampo, Emine Gozde Sevim, Curran Hatleberg, Guy Martin, Pete Muller, Elena Perlino, Nii Obodai Provencal, Asim Rafiqui and Peter van Agtmael. Each will receive a budgeted grant that will enable them to offer new perspectives or to complete “second chapters” of stories they have previously explored. For example, Black will extend the work he has done in California, for his Geography of Poverty project, to the American Southwest.
