CONTAINER EXHIBITION: China's Rat Tribe

About The Magnum Foundation:
The mission of the Magnum Foundation is to sustain the values and practice of in-depth, independent documentary photography as an art form that serves society by fostering empathy, engagement, and positive social change. The Foundation believes that such change comes about through compelling, independent documentation; active collaboration with other grass-roots and media organizations on distribution strategies; and through the innovative presentation and exhibition of high-quality work. The Magnum Foundation also supports authorship and seeks to position itself as a leader in search of new strategies for increased exposure and impact of documentary photographers in an ever-changing media landscape.
