This photo exhibition is being held to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Magnum Photos Tokyo. Known as an organization of photojournalists, Magnum Photos members include many photographers who are masters of capturing the moment. Instants of illumination discovered in the flow of casual everyday scenes have been caught in photos that transcend national and generational boundaries. Held at the RING CUBE gallery, the exhibition brings together the photographs of all 50 full members of Magnum Photos, with the images being selected primarily from among their latest works shot out in the field. Ricoh is confident that gallery visitors will fully experience the talent and thematic diversity that have characterized the members of Magnum Photos from the organization's founding until the present day.

A photographers' organization founded in 1947 by Robert Capa (b. Hungarian), Henri Cartier-Bresson (French), George Rodger (British), and David "Chim" Seymour (Polish) based on a proposal made by Capa. Created with the goal of emphasizing and protecting the rights and freedom of photographers, Magnum Photos has continued to gather talented photographers from many nations, operating with funds provided by the members themselves.
