 World-famous photojournalists have captured Paris, France, and the Busan Cultural Center working with Gaudium Associates decided to feature these photographs in "Magnum in Paris," a special exhibition, going on until Oct. 10.

 In 1947, a group of photographers in Paris banded together to form the "Magnum" photo cooperative. Beginning as a way to show the world for what it is, each founding photojournalist David "Chim" Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and William Vandivert, undertook a specific area of the globe, with Robert Capa following his curiosity and worldwide events. Some consider the group as the leader in photojournalism since the 20th century.

 Using a plane ticket look-alike, visitors can enter the exhibition, containing 11 sections and over 300 works from the 39 members of the Magnum Photos collective. The various areas include a wide range of subject matter. One section depicts the city as the pinnacle of world fashion. A particular area is devoted to Elliott Erwitt's works, known for their humorous take on humanity. Even a "Salon de Paris" is reproduced complete with books and illustrations, so visitors can enjoy the artwork and take a step back into the minds of the artists. 

 Reservations must be made on the website ( Admission is 10,000 won for children, 13,000 won for teenagers and 15,000 won for adults.
