In Love with Magnum
Coming up for Valentine’s Day, the fourth edition of Magnum Days is a special edition on the theme of couples and love. Magnum Photos invites you to find the most original Valentine’s Day gift of 2012 and participate to an unusual, poetic, romantic, incredible, surprising… moment, in the heart of Paris. Couples have the opportunity to have their portrait taken together in temporary portraits’ studios (Hôtels Lutetia, Mama Shelter, La Belle Juliette, Hôtel Amour, MK2 Bibliothèque) by iconic Magnum photographers Steve McCurry, Paolo Pellegrin, Bruce Gilden, Antoine d’Agata and Christopher Anderson (Sat 11 Feb, 10am-7pm, reserve here). The portraits realised during the studios will then be presented to the public in an original installation at Colette on Tue 14 Feb. The legendary photography agency also throws open the doors of its Paris HQ for an exceptional 3-day open house, and sale of collectors editions, monographs, exhibition catalogues, posters, postcards etc. And on Valentine’s Day, 7pm, Christopher Anderson’s new show ‘Son’ opens with a selection of about 15 prints that record his intimate life with his wife and son.
