101 Photos for Press Freedom

Sunday, Apr 22, 2012 12:00p to 5:00p

From protest and political change in Libya to devastation in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, photojournalists undertake grave risk to capture the pivotal moments in history. The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and the Consulate General of France in Boston celebrates that mission in 101 Photos for Press Freedom.
The exhibition’s 101 images convey war, revolution, and other world events that have unfolded since 1947, honoring the 25th anniversary of Reporters Without Borders.

Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontiéres) is a French-based organization that defends journalists and promotes freedom of the press on five continents. In 2010, it observed the 25th anniversary of its founding. Magnum Photos, founded in 1947, is to photojournalism what the Yankees are to baseball or, to use a comparison that’s more fitting (and less irksome), what Cristal is to champagne. Legend has it that the Magnum name came from that size of champagne bottle, which had been shared over the lunch where the idea for the agency was agreed to. The show “101 Photos for Press Freedom” honors a quarter century of Reporters Without Borders with that number of images from Magnum. It runs through April 22 at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and is also sponsored by the consulate-general of France. More than 60 Magnum photographers are represented.
