Magnum Is Back with the Square Print Sale!

You should be indoors, and perhaps looking at your walls, wondering what you could do to spruce them up!

Magnum has the answer, and signed or estate stamped prints by photographic masters will do just what you need!

I have 3 in my home and love them! Each one strategically placed so I see them as I move through the apt..

Please remember: they are 6″ x6″, so when framed, they fit almost anywhere in your home, without overwhelming the space.

“In life’s saddest winter moments, when you’ve been under a cloud for weeks, suddenly a glimpse of something wonderful can change the whole complexion of things, your entire feeling.”
Elliot Erwitt
 California. 1956.

Over 100 international photographers looked over their personal archives in search of images relating to, or capturing events that changed the course of history, society, a life, or a practice.
Their museum-quality signed and estate-stamped 6×6” prints are available for $100 through Sunday, April 12 on www.magnumphotos.com/shop
Magnum photographers will be donating 50% of their proceeds from the sale to Médecins Sans Frontières’s COVID-19 emergency response. These donations will be matched by a private charitable donor, up to a figure of $500,000.

“Skip Richheimer and I, both bikeriders, both photographers, were heading out of town to the scrambles at Elkhorn Wisconsin, Skip driving a VW Beetle. Five bikeriders approached us from behind, I’m sure heading to the races at Elkhorn as they passed around the car, like a swarm of bees. The bikers reached an overpass, lifting them up off the ground as they rose up before us. One of the bikers leaning to the side to speed past another. The great body language of motorcycles. That spring I showed the pictures I made at Elkhorn to Hugh Edwards, then curator at the Art Institute of Chicago. On May 8, 1963, he sent me a letter. “How I wish I had some influence in the world so that there might be a book of them, with a glorifying text by someone like William Burroughs, James Jones or John Dos Passos, the reproductions done by a great firm like Conzett and Huber in Zurich or Pizzi in Milan.” Three of the greatest living writers and the two greatest reproduction houses in the world. I was twenty-one. The letter changed my life forever.”

“To capture a flickering moment of joyous experience and share it with others—that was the reason I began photographing in the first place, and that is still the reason I take pictures today.

One of the things I like to see most when I look at a photograph I’ve just taken is something I’ve never seen before. Therefore, I’ve always enjoyed experimenting. This was the fuel behind my exploring the use of Kodak infrared color film in the late 60s. It was impossible to know what the resulting photographs would look like because the colors of the image were dependent on infrared light which is not visible to human eyes.

When I used infrared film I tried a variety of color filters. So, this image was a complete surprise to me. In fact, neither Bob nor I realized its power and beauty when we looked at it with a slide projector but passed it by in our quest to find a photograph for the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. I don’t recall either one of us commenting on this picture.

This image seems to reflect the otherworldliness of his music—different than anything before.”
Elliott Landy
 

And a pluson this is the charitable donation that is made with every sale.

They have joined up with a few other organizations in this, Aperture and The Everyday Projects Org. Plus Aperture has a crazy good book sale right now!

And due to the current world situation, there may be delays in delivery, but they are great communicators. so don’t worry!
