Founded by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David ‘Chim’ Seymour in 1947, Magnum Photos, which is owned by its photographer-members, has covered the world’s most historic moments. Magnum will tell the human stories of love, honour, laughter, betrayal and heartbreak that existed at the agency’s Paris HQ, whilst capturing the action and danger the photographers experienced traveling the world’s hotspots in the second half of the 20th Century. It will be executive produced by Carnival’s Richard Fell (Spies Of Warsaw). “Magnum is an extraordinary and unique organization, with a powerful history and an amazing story to tell,” said Carnival Films Managing Director Gareth Neame. “We can get right inside the key events of the second half of the 20th Century through the lives and lenses of these photographers in a bold and completely original way.” Carnival also recently teamed with Luther creator Neil Cross and Libertine Pictures to develop the drama series Bay Of Plenty for the BBC.
