Brown & Magnum Partner: Photography Expanded

The Brown Institute at Columbia’s School of Journalism is proud to partner with the Magnum Foundation to launch the 2015 Photography, Expanded Fellowship, an initiative that supports innovation at the intersection of technology and documentary practice and cultivates interdisciplinary ideation and production. This fellowship offers an opportunity for photographers to collaborate with technologists to expand their practices and to develop new forms for narrative storytelling to more effectively address social issues.

Magnum Foundation and the Brown Institute for Media Innovation are proud to award Photography, Expanded Fellowships to Peter DiCampo‘s “What Went Wrong” and Zun Lee’s “Fade Resistance.” Zara Katz and Lisa Riordan Seville will also receive a project development grant for Women on the Outside. These three projects exemplify the mission of the Photography, Expanded Program through their exploratory approaches to collaboration, exhibition, and dissemination. Pushing at the seams of documentary practice, they seek to fill representational gaps within the non-fiction paradigm of photography.

Based at the Brown Center for Media Innovation, Photography, ExpandedFellows will work with designers, coders, and advisors to develop platforms for sharing and engaging the public with their projects. Photography, ExpandedFellows will present their work during the Photography, Expanded Symposium on November 1st.
