Paris Photo 2007 presents the Magnum Photos Program
In celebration of its 60th year, Magnum Photo Agency has announced the upcoming inauguration of its first Paris gallery on November 17. The opening will take place during Paris Photo 2007, organized at the Carrousel du Louvre. The gallery will have regular exhibitions of vintage photography from Magnum's archives, as well as contemporary works of fine art photography. This dichotomy is represented in the inaugural exhibiton, a Tribute to Leonard Freed/Fashion Magazine by Alec Soth.
Freed is a respectable addition to Magnum's collection of vintage work, and Soth, another American, may someday be right alongside.
