Magnum Foundation’s Photography and Social Justice Program expands diversity and creativity. Focused on the field of documentary photography through capacity-building and critical explorations of photography and social change.
Each year, the program supports a diverse, international group of Photography and Social Justice Fellows who are passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through photography. During the program, Fellows work on projects with support from Magnum Foundation mentors.
Magnum Foundation covers the cost of travel and room and board for the sessions in New York City. Fellows also receive a modest stipend to support the production of their projects.
