Magnum square print sale launches with $100 prints by Alec Soth, Elliott Erwitt and more
Famed photographers collective Magnum photos have launched a new print sale, with work by renowned photographers Gregory Halpern, Carolyn Drake, Elliott Erwitt, Trent Parke and more, available for purchase for a strictly limited time.
The June 2019 Magnum Square Print Sale sees Magnum photographers and estates delve into their archives to select a single image that reflects the issues and working practices which have 'obsessed the collective’s members throughout their careers.'
From deep-seated beliefs that have driven career-long documentary explorations of political and social issues by Eli Reed and Susan Meiselas, to aesthetic fascinations which pushed the practices of photographers like Werner Bischof and Trent Parke into new, experimental territory – the selection represents the great breadth of the Magnum collective’s creative
motivations and output.
Magnum Photos was founded in Paris in 1947 as an artists’ co-operative by four pioneering photographers: Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, and David “Chim” Seymour.
‘Obsessions’ Magnum’s Square Print Sale runs from 11pm Monday 10 June until 2pm Saturday 15 June 2019. Signed and estate stamped, museum quality, 15,2x15,2cm prints from over 80 artists will exceptionally be available for $100, for 5 days only, from shop.magnumphotos.com.
