Magnum, the legendary photo collective, has opened a second gallery (at 13, rue de l’Abbaye, 75006 Paris) on the Left Bank in the former exhibition space of the photography publisher Robert Delpire, who is also the curator of the opening exhibition, “Demain, Hier” (through Jan. 2), and of another show at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie. The Magnum show focuses on powerful images, some of them disturbing depictions of the aftermath of war, by both the new generation of Magnum photographers as well as the founders of the agency: Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour. The opening of this second gallery (the other one is in Montmartre) in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés takes the collective back to its origins on Paris’s Left Bank. A program of exhibitions, lectures and events is planned. Madeleine Czigler
