“I think my interest gets sparked when I recognize a memory. That is when I take a picture.” -Alex Majoli

This photo essay, the second installment in our collaboration with Magnum Photos, examines the photographs of Alex Majoli taken over the course of his 25 year career. Having joined Magnum Photos in 1996, Majoli became a full member of the agency in 2001.

Alex Majoli shares his thoughts on war, freedom and photography — subjects he knows well having traveled the world documenting wars and political conflicts. Photography is not his only medium for storytelling; Majoli has also worked on short films and documentaries. He also composed the music for this video.
