70 years of Magnum Photos - the international photographic cooperative
The exhibition Open-Mouthed is focused on one of the most expressive parts of the human body – the mouth. With their mouth the objects of the photographs give expression to all human emotions – anger, joy, fear or happiness. This is a black and white retrospective journey through space and time, a journey in which we meet with unpublished images and those taken from different exhibitions.
