France, Paris, 1988, Pyramide du Louvre

Richard Kalvar’s 1988 photograph shows a crowd of visitors assembling outside the Louvre museum. Next to and distinct from the crowd, a man sits alone on a low wall. This is a scene common in cities, but often goes unnoticed. Kalvar’s framing brings another side of the city to light, putting a spotlight on silence, contemplation and loneliness in the bustling urban metropolis.

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.
