As a member of Magnum Photos, Paolo Pellegrin has travelled to some of the Earth’s harshest and most extreme environments, to bring back photographs which speak to a profound communality of human experience.
Working within a tradition of photography that transcends easy definition Pellegrin has received numerous accolades including the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, the Robert Capa Gold Medal Award and 11 World Press Photo Awards over the course of his three decade long career.
In this online exhibition, we celebrate the impressive diversity and scope of Pellegrin’s career and present available works.

“You want to be more vulnerable because that’s how your photography becomes more human. In a sense you want to become a totally blank canvas so the subject or situation reflects him or itself upon you.” – Paolo Pellegrin
