David Alan Harvey’s photograph of a boy with balloons on a street in Santiago, Chile, was taken in 1997.
It is included in Streetwise, a new collection of pictures from the archives of the Magnum agency.
The Magnum name became synonymous with street photography in the 1950s and 1960s under the guiding influence of co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson.
The current volume pays homage to Cartier-Bresson’s black-and-white “decisive moments” and examines the way that that spirit has been taken forward, particularly after advances in digital photography and printing enabled a revolution in colour in the 1980s.
