“This project was less about the specific people that disappear than it was about the longing itself. This is a longing I’ve had for as long as I can remember. This project was definitely a way for me to come to terms with that.” . In ‘Broken Manual’, Alec Soth explores the new lives forged by people opting out of society and the places where they retreat.

“I didn’t want to photograph him as just a clown, I wanted to photograph him in his inner life. I think because I stood there respecting his space and not clicking away with my camera he opened up to me. The next several weeks I went and toured around with the Clyde Beatty Circus and our relationship developed. It is important to have a respect for your subjects, and build a relationship before photographing." . Bruce Davidson discusses his 'Circus' series, which features in new Barbican exhibition 'Another Kind of Life'. Read our interview with curator Alona Pardo today on magnumphotos.com. Link in bio. .

PHOTO: "It was early morning when I saw this father and his son walking in the cold on the rail of Idomeni's train station, where thousands of refugees were stuck at the border between Macedonian and Greece. Most of these people spent weeks or month on the road before to arrive in this camp. They had a long journey, they fled their home because of conflicts, violent or economical crisis. Their stories, their fates seen to hang in a state of "in betweenness" where the wait, hope, anxiety, confusion and anguish coexist, clash and confine them to a vague and confused state: the Limbo."
