Magnum Photos archive moves to Texas

The Magnum Photos library of more than 180,000 press prints, recently purchased by Michael S. Dell (of Dell Inc.), has moved from New York City to its new home at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. The sale of the archive will help fund to scan the archive digitally and the move to the Ransom Center will allow the archive to be publicly accessible for the first time.

However, no need to buy that plane ticket — there are approximately 80,000 images from Magnum Photos already on ARTstor (keyword: magnumphotos; or, under Find –> Browse ARTstor by –> Collection, double click on Magnum Photos)
