In a continuation of Magnum Photos’ 75th-anniversary celebrations, the renowned agency is releasing another Square Print Sale, the second in a series of three. Titled ‘Now’, this special edition is curated in partnership with The Photographers’ Gallery in London, which invited 31 of its own collaborators to contribute photographs to the sale.
There are well over a hundred prints to feast your eyes upon, and consider as potential additions to your art collection. Here, the Wallpaper* photography team have curated an edit of must-haves. From Olivia Arthur’s portrait of a young dancer, to Gregory Halpern's bougainvillea with police tape, and Felicity Hammond’s abstraction of mineral extraction – it’s an eclectic, charged selection.
Created as museum-quality 6x6in prints, all either signed or estate stamped, the series enters into an interesting collective dialogue in response to the theme of the present. Photographers or their estates considered what work from their archive stands out to them today: an image perhaps that, upon reflection, was pivotal in their career; or an image that reminds them of an important experience or a moment. Together, they are photographic readings spanning eight decades in which photography has evolved into a more democratic medium, and been taken increasingly seriously as the artform it is.
As an interesting pivot away from the norm of editioned prints limited by their number, these are editioned by time, as they will never be available again in this format outside this limited sale window of 17 – 23 October 2022. While the sale is live, curious collectors can view the prints in person at The Photographers’ Gallery.
