No Whisper No Sigh is an introspective photo essay built around the concept of silence—from the societal silence surrounding madness; to the political silence forced on citizens living under a dictatorship; to that most personal silence, the intense desire to express oneself and unburden the soul. Music composed specially by a Finnish collective.
Abuse of Domestic Workers
With dreams to earn money for their childrens' education or to build new homes, mothers and wives from Indonesia, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka are increasingly seeking work as live-in domestic workers elsewhere. As Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas and Human Rights Watch researcher Nisha Varia witnessed, the grave risks and costs of working while excluded from labor laws and away from family often outweigh any benefit that may be had, putting the promise of migration into question.
The photographs in Gilles Peress’ Telex: Iran were taken during a five-week period in late 1979 and early 1980—a time of upheaval for the country. Published first in 1984, then again in 1997, this book and its images remain relevant today.
Writer Ernest Hemingway, who was born on July 21, 1899, became friends with Magnum founder Robert Capa during the Spanish Civil War while they were covering the conflict as correspondents. Throughout their friendship, Capa photographed Hemingway and in doing so successfully captured the spirit and sense of adventure they shared. Hemingway, who redefined the English language with his signature sparse writing style, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.
