Magnum is a photographic collective founded in 1947. Magnum photographers are a rarity, and the agency is self-selecting, with a 4-year long process. The membership has evolved over the years to encompass the work of almost 100 diverse photographers.
We have offices in New York, London, and Paris, and work with press, publishers, advertising, television, galleries, and museums across the world. We have a traveling roster of over 100 exhibitions, education initiatives focused on the next generation of visual storytellers, an e-commerce platform, and an editorial platform telling stories across art, culture, news, and photography to our audience of over 5.5 million.
About the role
Reporting to the Production Director, the Digitization Manager is a photographic post-production specialist that converts our analogue collections via scanning and photography to enable them to be accessed and preserved digitally. In addition, you will also take delivery of newly created work by our photographers to integrate with Magnum’s archive.
The role is based at Magnum’s New York City office. Visits to our other offices and photographer members’ homes may be required on occasion.
Working with the Archive Director and in tandem with our digitization staff in London and Paris, you will discover previously undigitized works and update existing digital assets before delivering to internal departments who then connect the content with our audiences.
This role contributes to the overall operation of Magnum Photos by creating thousands more images within the digital archive and improves quality, audience engagement and income generation. It is a rare opportunity to work with a famous collection of iconic photographs and world-renowned photographers.
This is a full-time role, 40hrs per week (09:30 - 18:30 Monday to Friday).
Who you are
You have a passion for photography and history with a high level of concentration and attention to detail. You are a specialist in photographic digitization and post-production as this will form most of your work. You are equally comfortable working on large scale digitization projects or single image requests, as required. You have a positive, problem solving approach and take great pride in the results of your work.
