rare print sale
"The picture made me a vegetarian. But only for a while.” Elliott Erwitt
When it comes to the prestigious international photography cooperative Magnum, originally co-founded by the French photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson in the end of the 1940s, all the photographer-members are carefully choosen for their artistic qualities. So being a member of Magnum Photos certainly guarantees high recognition of a photographer's work.
Leading up to Magnum Photos' 68th Annual General Meeting, the cooperative's members were asked to select "An Image that Changed Everything”. As a result, Magnum is having a very rare print sale that includes 51 photographs for only 100$ a piece. The idea is that each member was asked to select a specific photograph that they felt changed or represented a turning point in their career and life. The selection is very diverse but each photograph has something to tell... and does so in a very impressive way. It´s also a nice opportunity to learn about the story behind these famous images.
The prints are signed, “museum quality,” 6 x 6“ (15,24 x 15,24 cm), $100 a piece and you have two more days (until June 12th) to purchase one. Who knows if they will ever do something like this again, so if something strikes you, don’t hesitate.
