Austria, Obergurgl, 2006

Stuart Franklin was born in London in 1956. Having left school at 16, he went on to study photography at West Surrey College of Art and Design. His photographic career began when he started to work for the Sunday Times and Sunday Telegraph Magazine in London and later with Agence Presse Sygma in Paris. As well as an extensive photographic portfolio, Franklin has produced a number of documentaries, exhibitions and books during his career. He also studied geography at Oxford University in the late 1990s in order to better understand theoretically the issues his practice brought him into contact with.

Sedition presents a digital edition of an photography taken by Franklin on 13 July 2006. The image, captured in Otztal, Austria, shows the cave-like interior of a glacier. The sweeping curve of the ice-wall directs the eye towards the summer sun outside.

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.
