Take A Moment

Take A Moment

These pictures say more than a thousand words

A great philosopher once said that life is made up of moments: whether lost, life changing or magic. Either way, a captured collection of 70 years of these more-than-OMG moments are now framed and mounted on the walls of Compton Verney Art Gallery for us to experience ourselves. Magnum Manifesto is nothing to do with delicious, affordable white ice cream and everything to do with truly exceptional, enduring imagery. To claim that some of these photographs are out of this world is hardly hyperbolic: for example, try and take in the moment (pictured), that Russian spacecraft salvagers were set upon by a swarm of white butterflies, as captured by world-renowned snap-smith Jonas Bendiksen. That starship scrappage even exists nearly broke our fragile little minds so you never know, you might just have a moment too. Over Warwickshire way, and more than worth the mileage from B-postcodes, the art is on until December 15. Details
