“In the search for the truth we should experiment whenever possible.”

What does ‘truth” in photography mean in this time of digital disruption, fake news and the reassessment of representation and authorship? Many of Magnum’s current generation of photographers are expanding their methods of telling stories to address the multifarious challenges to the photographic image. For Alex Majoli, the evolution from his photojournalistic origins has led to an eight-year long exploration of the theatricality of life.

Opera Aperta represents the most radical chapter yet in this investigation. Commissioned by the Fondazione I Teatri in Reggio Emilia, it incorporates multiple ideas about performance and the pandemic in a purposefully open and unresolved narrative.
