Chris Steele-Perkins is a photographer who has worked extensively worldwide, particularly throughout Africa, Central America and Lebanon, as well as in Japan and the UK. His reportages have won him acclaim and a number of prestigious awards including the World Press Award in 2000 and the Royal Photographic Society Terrence Donovan Award in 2008.
Sedition presents a photograph from 2015 by Steele-Perkins as part of the Magnum at 70, Series 1 collection. The image was captured in Myanmar at the edge of the Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park. It shows a row statutes, which make up a shrine, but could just as easily be a moving procession.
The work is included as part of the Magnum at 70 partnership between Magnum Photos and Sedition in celebration of 70 years of the world renowned photography collective. Collections of iconic photographic and video works by artists represented by Magnum Photos will be released as digital editions on Sedition as part of an international programme throughout 2017.
