Magnum Photos & MMPVA present 'Portrait of Marrakech'

29 November 2013

Magnum Photos, the international co-operative owned by it's photographer members has collaborated with Marrakech Museum for Photography and Visual Art (MMPVA) to present ‘Portrait of Marrakech’ which features new work by five Magnum photographers, curated on site by the French lecturer and African-art pundit Simon Njami.

The newly designed MMPVA is set to be the largest of its kind when it is completed in 2016 and in anticipation of it’s launch Magnum photographers Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Abbas, Mark Power and Mikhael Subotsky were invited to spend seven days photographing in Morocco. Much like a previous Magnum project, Postcards from America the idea is based around a desire to produce work built on the shared artistic experience of living and working together in a specific location, supported by and in dialogue with an online and local photographic community,

Mark Power commented: “My own approach was led by my equipment, an (on-loan) Phase One back paired with an Alpa body. The camera allows two images to be made side-by-side which are then stitched together in Photoshop. Its resolution, two images of 80 megapixels each, enabled me to retain a discreet distance and, after a time, I seemed to become almost invisible. In a city much over-photographed by tourists this method felt both sensible and appropriate, given the impossibility of being anything other than a tourist myself.

“I revelled in the beautiful, shambolic mess that is Marrakech, viewing the city as a stage, the play a series of scenes within scenes, pictures within pictures.

Metro has produced almost fifty C Type and black & white resin prints for three of the featured photographers: Mark Power, Jim Power and Abbas.
