Exile, a new exhibition at the French documentary photography festival, will bring together the work of 22 Magnum Photographers to present a visual representation of nearly 70 years of international migration and displacement.
The exhibition, at Visa Pour L’Image Perpignan, is a collaboration between Magnum Photos and Canon, who will also be providing a free portfolio reviews for emerging photographers at the festival.
Providing a historic context to the current migration crisis in Europe, Exile, will include images of civilians returning home following World War II by Robert Capa; Philip Jones Griffiths’ Vietnamese woman fleeing a US bomb attack; and John Vink’s documentation of the displaced in South Sudan.
Presenting coverage of conflicts ranging from the Six Day War, Iraq, Rwanda and the Arab Spring the exhibition also includes work by Abbas, Bruno Barbey, Robert Capa, Thomas Dworzak, Alex Majoli, Susan Meiselas, Paulo Pellegrin and Jerome Sessini amongst others.
Forgoing historical, chronological or geographical order, the exhibition aims to illustrate the sheer number of those uprooted, made homeless and transient, progressing towards an uncertain future.
Exile, in collaboration with Canon at Visa Pour L’Image Perpignan, France, will go on display 29 August – 4 September 2016. For more information see here.
