Zoe Strauss, Jerome Sessini and Bieke Depoorter are Magnum's newest nominees.
Strauss is particularly known for The Billboard Project, a series of photos displayed on 54 separate billboards, traversing dozens of neighbours in Philadelphia. Strauss took the images during her travels around the US, including Grand Isle Beach in the Gulf of Mexico, Venice Beach in California, Rosedale, Mississippi, and Fairbanks, Alaska.
Depoorter received her master’s degree in photography from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent in 2009. She joins from the Tendance Floue collective, and has been working on autonomous projects, she says.
Sessini covers international current events, from Palestine to Iraq, Haiti and Somalia.
Moises Saman, who joined Magnum two years ago as a nominee, has been promoted to associate member of the agency. Dominic Nahr, however, remains a nominee for one more year, BJP understands.
Jacob Aue Sobol, who joined in 2007 and was made associate in 2010, is now a full member of the agency.
