Time Out says

Inspired by a quote from the renowned photographer Robert Capa’s, who said “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough,” this show presents more than 150 works. The images are by 12 contemporary women photographers assoicated with Magnum Photos, the pioneering photography collective co-founded by Capa. 

The works feature experiences of young Islamic women in Turkey, the evolution of a young club performer in Paris, and the story of women who sought refuge from domestic violence in the, UK.

The exhibition coincides with the 75th anniversary of Magnum Photos’ founding; see it at the International Center of Photography from September 30 through January 9, 2023.
