The Magnum Foundation (MF) believes in the transformative power of narrative-driven photography and is dedicated to exploiting this power to raise awareness, foster empathy, engage communities, and activate collaborations. With support from the Compton Foundation, MF will develop ambitious, site-specific projects that will explore new models of visual storytelling to expand understanding of and engagement in key global issues. Specifically, MF will implement three projects that will engage public audiences in a variety of photo essays that explore such topics as the plight of refugees, the precariousness of housing, and the dearth of healthy food options in low-income, urban communities.
