Magnum Treasure Hunt
On a sunny Saturday afternoon, May 20th, Plinth staged a Magnum Treasure Hunt across London. Beginning at The Magnum Home, participants paced the city to locate and recreate images from Magnum’s archive, from Henri Cartier-Bresson in Trafalgar Square to Chris Steele Perkins in Soho. All they needed was a camera phone; after taking one photo, they sent it to Plinth to receive the next! The winners, a team lead by Victor Lacima, were selected by Magnum photographer Matt Stuart. Below are the fruits of their labour, set next to the original images - we must say, we were blow away.
