For 50 years, Médecins Sans Frontières and Magnum Photos cover the same areas of intervention: war zones, humanitarian crises, natural disasters, emergencies. They share the same ethics and the same principles, in particular independence.

MSF’S fifthieth anniversary is an opportunity to retrace decades of fortuitous or voluntary collaborations, which gave birth to a project that is both narrative and visual. This exhibition presents a selection of 19 photographic themes from Magnum archives, testifying to the main humanitarian crises, from 1971 to the present day. It is supplemented by a series of short stories productions that highlight four current crises in which MSF is committed to.
