Jonas Bendiksen began his career at the age of 19 as an intern at Magnum Photo’s London office, before leaving for Russia to pursue his own work as a photojournalist. Since then he has produced work internationally, often focusing on isolated communities and enclaves. In 2005, with a grant from the Alicia Patterson Foundation, he started working on The Places We Live, a project on the growth of urban slums across the world, which combines still photography, projections and voice recordings to create three-dimensional installations.
While working in Brazil in 2014, Bendiksen produced a slow-moving video work presented as a digital limited edition on Sedition. The work shows a young boy in front of a patchwork of buildings.
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.
