New gallery: A Backstage Look At Magnum Photos New York
Long time no see. I took sort of a break during the last 10 days. I was working on the concept for a new project, I worked on the interview with Simon Wheatley, I met with friends in Vienna, I did some work for Magnum and for the last couple of days I was busy saving my Laptop from dying. Suddenly it started to crash every couple of minutes. I went to buy a second external harddrive, saved all my files on it and reinstalled the operating system. Fortunatly everything seems to work again.
Anyways, regarding the job at Magnum in London. I didn't get an answer yet. I'll have to wait another couple of days.
New gallery with images from Magnum
Today I am updating the blog with a new gallery showing images I took during my time at Magnum. It's mosty snapshots. This new gallery is a tribute to those behind the scenes. The photographers do a great job, but let's not forget about the people who work for all the Magnum photographers and who dedicate theirselfs to this job. Working at Magnum is certainly not the best payed job in the world so people don't work at Magnum for the money. Damn, if it's not because of the money... Why do they work there? Because of their passion.
This gallery is a tributen to my colleagues at the Magnum Photos office in New York as it is to give you a better insight in the work circumstances there. It was good fun and I really never had another job which I only liked nearly as much as this one.
Originally I wanted to record all the staff. Everybody should have told me their name, what they are doing at Magnum and sort of a nice and funny anecdote about work. I started doing that but since I left New York five days earlier then expected I couldn't finish this. So no sound this time.
I hope you enjoy this little look backstage! Let me know what you think and the next update will be the Simon Wheately interview.
