EIZO and Magnum Photos have joined forces to establish a program in which 14 Magnum ambassadors will integrate EIZO's ColorEdge monitors into their colour management workflow and provide EIZO with objective feedback on their experiences. Their insights will assist EIZO in its ongoing development of new graphics monitor and calibration software solutions.
EIZO and Magnum will also cooperate on creating individual profiles of the ambassadors with insights into their careers, bodies of work, and experiences with EIZO monitors. EIZO will begin posting these profiles on its website
in November. In addition, each ambassador will share a selection of images from their work for EIZO to showcase its monitors at exhibitions and in showrooms worldwide.
Alex Majoli, President, Magnum Photos International said: "Colour and grayscale accuracy is paramount for Magnum and its photographer members. With numerous large-scale exhibitions in cultural institutions each year, ensuring the accurate translation of the image into fine-art prints is essential. The integration of EIZO's ColorEdge series monitors into our workflow will serve both the restoration of historical Magnum imagery and the production of contemporary photographs by our members."
Yoshitaka Jitsumori, President and CEO of EIZO Corporation added: "We are very pleased to collaborate with Magnum Photos and provide our graphics solutions for the important work of chronicling the people and events of our times. The insights Magnum provides about our monitors will contribute significantly to our continued ability to create innovative graphics solutions and simplify the usage experience within a creative workflow while delivering the most accurate colour possible."
The Magnum Photos Ambassadors taking part in the program are: Carl De Keyzer, Elliot Erwitt, Jim Goldberg, Paul Hayward, Alex Majoli, Enrico Mochi, Matt Murphy, Trent Parke, Martin Parr, Paulo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Jonathan Roquemore, Alec Soth, and Donovan Wylie.
