The Athenians

The prestigious photo agency Magnum Photos founded
by the great Henri Cartier-Bresson commissioned AM Studio
to create an editorial portfolio for its multi-awarded photographer Jérôme Sessini.

Creative director Alexandra Mercuri collaborated closely
with the photojournalist to create a story that will transcribe
the intensity of his personal work into a series of editorial portraits.

The Athenians narrates the intensity of each subject whilst being faithful
to the photojournalist’s universe; grounded in reality
rather than to adhere to any form of idealism.
