Square Print Sale - Charity Information

Turning Points, the April 2020 Magnum Square Print Sale in collaboration with The Everyday Projects, brought together a selection of over 100 images by international photographers and visual artists. The participating photographers scoured personal archives in search of images that represent changes in the course of history, society, a life, or an artistic practice.

When this theme was settled upon, few involved foresaw the changes that would develop across the globe over coming weeks. With the world facing unprecedented challenges in the face of a sprawling pandemic, reflections around personal fulcrums, social tipping-points, and geo-political crossroads seem eerily apt. In response, Magnum photographers will be donating 50% of their proceeds from the sale to Médecins Sans Frontières’s COVID-19 emergency response. We are thrilled to announce that a private charitable donor will match Magnum photographers’ donations, up to $500,000.
