About photo exhibitions <br /> We have enjoyed sports in every situation of our daily lives since ancient times.
Competitive sports, recreational sports, and sports that not only participate but also watch.
Since its founding in 1947, Magnum Photos has played a role in witnessing the times with photographs.
The scenery of sports from all over the world seen in daily life, captured by the two photographers I belong to.
It reminds us that sports are what color and enrich people's lives, whether they are everyday, extraordinary, or east or west.
