A selection of historic Contact Sheets by Magnum photographers are available as high quality, unsigned, contemporary 16×20″ prints. These contact prints offer the opportunity to own a piece of Magnum’s history.
LIFE magazine assigned Eve Arnold to document the controversial and intensely charismatic Malcolm X. For nearly a year, Arnold followed the thug-turned-devout Muslim and activist, from Washington to New York to Chicago. This contact sheet features intimate portraits of Malcolm X visiting enterprises owned by Black Muslims.
Arnold first became associated with Magnum Photos in 1951, and became a full member in 1957. She was based in the US during the 1950s but went to England in 1962 to put her son through school; except for a six-year interval when she worked in the US and China, she lived in the UK for the rest of her life.
Giclée print, 16×20”, stamped w. Uneditioned.
Reproducing the original without alteration and enlarged to a 16″x20″ paper size, these Magnum Contacts offer a unique insight into the methods by which our photographers produced some of their best known images, by clearly showing the sequence of frames and the marks of the editing process on each sheet.
These prints are embossed ‘Magnum Photos Collection’ on the white border in the bottom right corner and hand stamped with the photographers copyright on the back.
