I suspect I’m going to have to find a reason in the next few years to head to the University of Texas at Austin – they’ve just acquired a 200,000 print archive from Magnum Photos. What a research opportunity … heck, what an opportunity to experience history.
The article says it’s only the print archive, not the copyrights to any of the images. Which would mean they can’t sell or distribute the prints, but may be able to do exhibitions and make them available for researchers.
A second thanks to Greg Mironchuk for the heads up on this.
