The Last SummerLiberia: Peace in Progress
The Last Summer
by Peter Marlow

The Concorde, at its fastest, could put one mile behind it every 2.6 seconds. Magnum photographer Peter Marlow documented the last days of the Concorde before its 2003 retirement. His work became an homage to plane spotters. Standing on barren stretches of tarmac, crouching behind fences, or perched on the sterile partitions of airport car parks, these men and women dedicated innumerable hours to scanning the skies.

Liberia: Peace in Progress
by Paolo Pellegrin

The end of a conflict is not always synonymous with peace. Liberia received constant media coverage during its 14-year war, yet today seems to have been forgotten. As Liberia struggles to build a lasting peace amongst colossal challenges, it is now that it deserves the attention of the international community. Médecins du Monde and Magnum Photos have joined forces to present this photographic work by Paolo Pellegrin.
