Magnum Sport: icons and the everyday 16th July- 9th September 2012


Premiered in Birmingham Magnum Sport brings the work of 40 internationally acclaimed photographers from the celebrated photography agency, Magnum Photos, to audiences on the streets of the Colmore Business District.

This exhibition builds on the successful partnership projects presented by Colmore Business District and the Library of Birmingham bringing together public and private sector organisations to deliver exceptional photography exhibitions and projects.

The exhibition, located at two sites at Colmore Square and the new Church Street Square, features 70 extraordinary photographs by some of the world’s leading documentary photographers.

Presented to coincide with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the exhibition shows sport as a universal language which knows no borders; sport as an activity which bridges social, religious, and cultural and gender divides and sport as part of, not separate from everyday life.
