“HOME” Exhibition

This event has ended.

Magnum Photos and FUJIFILM Corporation invited sixteen Magnum Photographers to create visual short stories, portraying the complex meaning of what “HOME” is in each photographer’s own style. The theme that they were to explore, universally known in English as Home, was chosen precisely for its global nature, and for the inherently human sentiment that it conveys. The medium format, mirrorless camera to be used would allow for the discreet, sensitive, and intimate treatment the subject required.

“Together, these sixteen visual short stories compose a remarkably beautiful, poetic and complex portrait of what “home” is, and of what it can be. They encapsulate these profound and conflicting human feelings all at once: the inside and the outside, the pleasure and the pain. This project, envisioned in Tokyo, London and New York, takes us to over ten countries, and will travel extensively throughout the world after it premieres in New York. It is a testament to what a thoughtful collaboration can give birth to. In and of itself, through the wealth of diversity, talent and depth of Magnum, it exemplifies the power and quintessential role of photography in our societies: it touches us to the core.”
— Pauline Vermare, Magnum Cultural Director and curator of the exhibition

The outcome of the “HOME” project is a global traveling exhibition of the photographers’ work to be featured in ten cities around the world accompanied by a comprehensive photo book. The kick-off is scheduled for March 2-14, 2018 at Milk Gallery in New York City. All color prints at the exhibition will feature Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper.

The exhibition will also include a variety of photo events – many of which are free to the public. Lectures from renowned Magnum photographers including David Alan Harvey, Mark Power and Alex Webb are scheduled between March 3 and March 14. Other special events include a Curator’s Tour led by Pauline Vermare, “HOME” Curator and Cultural Director of Magnum Photos as well as a High Line Photo Walk at one of New York’s greatest park attractions led by Fujifilm in partnership with FUJIFILM Premier Dealer, Foto Care. Additionally, Fujifilm will be holding free “Check and Clean” services open to the public for all X Series and GFX system bodies and lenses on select days to coincide with the “HOME” exhibition.
