Magnum Live Lab/19

Magnum Live Lab/19

Magnum Live Lab

This open-house project was launched by Magnum Photos who represents some of the worldʼs most renowned photographers, maintaining its founding ideals and idiosyncratic mix of journalist, artist and storyteller. Live Lab is a multiple photographer residency program, producing work in direct response to the location and community in which it is situated. Over the course of two weeks, photographers, along with a curator, work in an experimental ʻlabʼ, to produce a new body of work and pop up exhibition. (live demonstrations until April 21, displays only thereafter).

Winner of ten World Press Photo Awards, Italian photographer Paolo Pellegrin (b.1964) has covered wars and disasters around the world. Traveling to Antarctica in November 2017 with NASAʼs Operation IceBridge, which monitors the effect of global warming on the polar icecap and rising sea levels, Pellegrin graphically shows us how the crisis of climate change, brought on by unchecked human development, is as dangerous as any armed conflict.

In 2004, when Okahara was in his mid-twenties, a former schoolmate confided that she habitually hurt herself, and so he began photographing women with compulsive self-harm disorders. The background issues are many—family and community problems, bullying at school and abusive relationships, complexities they cannot solve for themselves—yet underlying it all is the dark shadow of society's neglect. Okahara's photos offer a place for sharing the importance of family and personal connections, social standing and self-esteem, as well as an opportunity to ask how photographic expression can better serve society.
