In the West, holidays are typically associated with consumer culture. Hedonism, excess and the fleeting romanticism of the seaside have drawn photographers for decades, but, in the context of 20th-century history, that’s just one side of the story. In 1981, late Magnum photographer @peter_marlow and journalist Roger Cooper travelled to Soviet Russia on commission for The Sunday Times to document its resorts and sanatoriums which were built on completely different values: health, efficiency and organized collective experience. On this journey, Marlow produced a fascinating visual survey of holiday culture behind the Iron Curtain, from infrastructure to landscapes to the thrills and pleasures of the ordinary Soviet citizen. See the photos today on magnumphotos.com. Link in bio.

Over the course of his six-decade career, @davidhurnphoto has been systematically building a collection of images built upon a shared exchange process. The innovative tradition began in the 1950s, with the Magnum photographer organizing an ‘image swap’ between other photographers, many of which are his fellow Magnum colleagues. The result is a collection of over 600 images, ranging from the intimate to the universal, from the 19th century to the present day.
.
Now, following exhibitions in London and Cardiff, a selection of images from David Hurn's collection are showing at @martinparrfdn in Bristol. The exhibition includes photographs taken by Hurn himself, alongside key photographic works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alec Soth, Christopher Anderson, Elliott Erwitt and Newsha Tavakolian, giving not just overview of Magnum across the decades, but an insight into Davin Hurn as a connoisseur and patron of documentary photography.
.
'Magnum Swaps: David Hurn’s Collection' is showing until September 15, 2018.

As one of the winners of the PHmuseum 2018 Grant, Magnum photographer @biekedepoorter is exhibiting the winning project 'As it may be' at @cortonaotm photography festival, which opens tomorrow.
.
Since 2011, Bieke Depoorter has travelled to Egypt during several key moments in the uprising, attempting to find trust in times of turmoil and suspicion, where private life is often shielded. She asked people she met by chance if she could spend the night at their homes. Women, their husbands and children shared their daily life, their food and even their beds with her. This personal engagement is at the core of Depoorter’s practice. In 2017, she revisited the country with her work and invited others to contribute by writing comments directly onto photographs. Contrasting views on country, religion, society and photography arose between people who would otherwise never cross paths. ‘As it may be’ is Depoorter’s depiction of a population navigating transition with integrity, commitment, and respect.

The Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia, is currently holding an exhibition dedicated to the work of Italian Magnum photographer Ferdinando Scianna as part of Brescia Photo Festival. 'Cose' features a combination of images and found objects from Scianna’s personal trove that aims to give insight into the photographer’s practice, and the many roles he embodies as an anthropologist, journalist and writer.
.
Acting as a sort of private diary, 'Cose' brings together many things that try to tell the meaning, the shape, the emotions, that the world offers, and evoke places and sensations far away in time and space.
.
The exhibition is showing until September 2, 2018. For more info, please visit magnumphotos.com/events.

On the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Sicily, we look back at Magnum co-founder Robert Capa's documentation of the campaign. Link in bio.
.
While Robert Capa flew with paratroopers being dropped over Sicily during the Allied invasion’s earliest days, he didn’t arrive on the island until late July, when he disembarked from a supply ship. He followed the American forces along the coast to Agrigento and from there moved into the island’s mountainous interior. It was in this region that much of the hardest fighting was done, as German units fought a rear-guard action hoping to hold off the allies until an evacuation of their comrades from Messina, in the island’s north east, was complete.
.
Capa entered Troina, a well-defended hilltop town that had been heavily bombarded by Allied forces in order to dislodge its defenders, with the first American patrol and found traumatised locals who had endured the extended barrage.
