Kristen Lubben, a longtime curator at the International Center of Photography, has been appointed the first full-time executive director of the Magnum Foundation. Lubben was a curator at the ICP since 1997 and she organized more than 20 exhibitions there. She is also the author of many publications, including Magnum Contact Sheets, published in 2014 by Thames & Hudson.

The Magnum Foundation was created in 2007 by members of Magnum Photos in order to support the next generation of image-makers through training, grants, and mentorship and to preserve the history of documentary of photography through publications and research.
