Using Their Illusion, Young Magicians Change the Face of Their Craft

The most talented and innovative magicians in the world are working to change the identity of magic. Most are young and covered in tattoos and practice sleight-of-hand, pickpocketing, hypnosis, mentalism and card handling. They are at the forefront of creating the illusions that keep the magic world moving forward, changing the way that people think of magic and magicians.

Reportage contributor Benjamin Rasmussen photographed these new illusionists as they gathered for the Blackpool Magic Convention in England. See more of these photos on
