Magnum photographers have donated images for this exhibition in support of the organization Reporters Without Borders and in recognition of the important work of independent journalists and photojournalists who risk safety, comfort, and their lives to bring the news about events around the world. The exhibition includes work by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour, and many other renowned photographers.

Reporters Without Borders is present in all five continents through its national branches, its offices in London, New York, and Washington, and more than 140 correspondents in various countries. RWP supports journalists who may be detained, imprisoned, or injured, as well as offers help to their families in cases where journalists have been killed.
