France, Paris, 2008, Musée d'Orsay

The Musée d’Orsay in Paris is home to perhaps the best known and most impressive mechanical clocks in the world. The clock face is also a window onto the river, and anyone who passes behind the hands becomes momentarily part of the arrangement. The museum houses French art dating from 1848 to 1915 including an extensive collection of Impressionist masterpieces by painters such as Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Cezanne. This photograph was taken by Marlow as part of a series of images featuring icons of Paris for a British Airways advertisement in 2008.

The Magnum at 70, Series 2 – Paris Collection is the second in a series of collections showcasing and celebrating the work of members of the renowned artists’ cooperative, Magnum Photos. The photographic and video works are released on Sedition as curated selections of digital editions as part of a yearlong partnership with Magnum Photos throughout 2017. The Magnum at 70 partnership celebrates 70 years of Magnum Photos by revisiting iconic, era-defining photographic works from the past seven decades and looking ahead to the digital future of photography.
