Magnum Foundation’s Photography > Social Justice Programme (USA)
Magnum Foundation’s Photography and Social Justice Programme expands diversity and creativity in the field of documentary photography through capacity-building and critical explorations of photography and social change.
Each year, the programme supports a diverse, international group of Photography and Social Justice Fellows who are passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through photography. With New York City as a cultural resource, the programme provides space for interdisciplinary experimentation, mentored project development, and cross-cultural, critical discourse at the intersection of photography and social justice. During the programme, Fellows work on projects in their home communities with support from Magnum Foundation’s mentors.
Magnum Foundation covers the cost of travel and room and board for the sessions in New York City. Fellows also receive a modest stipend to support the production of their projects. The programme is produced in partnership with the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.
Eligible candidates include:- Early-career documentary photographers, artists, and photojournalists
- Activists who use photography in their change-making practice
- Journalists who would like to deepen their engagement with photography
- Scholars who incorporate images and image-making in their research and scholarship
