Family: A Contemporary Portrait by Magnum Photos and Guest Artists
Photographs by Magnum Photos and Guest Artists, Foreword by Leila Slimani
Magnum Photos and two rising artists from Korea and China were commissioned to celebrate a modern portrait of what family means today.
Bringing together the world of Parisian fashion brand AMI with the singular vision of photographers from the internationally acclaimed Magnum Photos agency and two guest artists, this book presents a contemporary, intimate, and poignant vision of what family, in the broadest sense, means today. These photographs form a tapestry of modern family relationships and will be exhibited in Paris, Frieze London, Art Basel Miami, and Kyotographie, Japan from September 2022. Custom designed with foil stamping and exceptional details, the cloth Swiss-binding has an unattached spine and wrap-around cover to allow the book to lie flat. Two horizontal double gatefolds and two vertical gatefolds provide a panoramic view of works by four contributors.
