Susan Meiselas spearheads an exhibition of 13 female Magnum photographers

True to the collective spirit of a co-operative such as Magnum, Susan Meiselas has transformed a monographic exhibition at the Magnum Paris gallery into an open invitation to all female Magnum photographers.

The exhibition aims to bring together the work of the different generations of female Magnum photographers, inspired by the historic exhibition Magna Brava, which took place in 1999 at the National Gallery of Scotland and displayed the work of six female Magnum photographers. Two decades later, their number has risen to thirteen, but proportionally they are still the minority.
