Magnum Photos continues its 75th-anniversary celebrations with the latest in a series of three Square Print Sales looking back over its illustrious history, from 1947 to the present day.
The October sale is curated in partnership with The Photographers’ Gallery in London, which has invited 30 photographers it works with to join in by contributing their own iconic image, taking the total number to more than 100 signed or estate-stamped, museum-quality 6x6” prints.
The sale will be open from Monday October 17, 09:00 EST to Sunday, October 23, 23:59 EST and will take place on the Magnum Photos Shop: www.magnumphotos.com/shop
Magnum Square Prints are printed on 6×6” (15.24×15.24 cm) archival paper; image size is 5.5” (14 cm) on the longest side. Images will not be cropped but will instead have white borders. They are not editioned by quantity, but editioned by time, as these items will not be made available outside the sale window. The images in each sale are always different, and will never be available in this format again.
By downloading and publishing these images you agree to include the following information in editorial:
Over 100 signed or estate-stamped, museum-quality 6x6" prints by Magnum and The Photographers' Gallery photographers for $100. Available for one week only.
Under strict embargo until Monday October 17, 0900 EST.
High-res images and the accompanying statement are available below. Quotes and interviews with some of the photographers will be available for limited press usage during the Square Print Sale only.
