Join Magnum photographers and speakers for a series of free talks and discussions in the Life Rewired Hub, as they explore technology's impact on our existence through the medium of photography
Technology and its impact on our world is arguably the most critical story of the 21st Century. Societal changes led by technological developments, are affecting almost every aspect of our lives.
Photography is uniquely placed to document the dialogue between man and technology as both medium and message. In their week-long takeover of the Life Rewired Hub, Magnum encourages visitors to engage with this theme through a series of free, interactive and informal creative experiments, presentations and conversations. Magnum books, images and short films will also be on display.
The Language of Pictures. Join Magnum Photos staff to explore visual storytelling in this one-hour informal workshop. Participants will work in groups, using prints from Magnum’s archive, to explore editing, sequencing and creating narrative on the subject of our relationship to technology.
