Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, and later with the Black Lives Matter protests, we’ve seen many print sales on the rise – from Don’t Back Down! to The Time is Now, to Pictures for Elmhurst. But here’s another one that’s been celebrated these past years: the Magnum Square Print Sale, which this year is made in collaboration with Vogue, and that supports the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). So, until August 2nd, get your hands on $100 signed or estate-stamped prints by some of the most renowned photographers in contemporary history.

“In a year of global societal and political upheaval that has seen the Black Lives Matter cause taken up around the world as well as hundreds of millions facing government restrictions on movement, this theme challenges participating photographers to reflect upon the power of togetherness in tumultuous times,” the organisation explains. “While acknowledging the daunting divisions and fault-lines running through society, the selection will examine a simultaneous human yearning for commune and connection, aiming to explore the strength of both the individual and collective, as well as the interdependence of peoples around the world in the face of adversity and oppression.”

With this theme in mind, the selection includes pictures from the 1950s to the present day that offer an incredible myriad of approaches to collectivity, identity, revolution, Blackness, politics, solidarity, positivity, change or otherness. With works by Martin Parr, Cristina de Middel, Stuart Franklin, Alex Webb, Antoine d’Agata, Hassan Hajjaj, Philippe Halsman, Robert Capa or Sohrab Hura, to mention just a few, the Square Print Sale is a unique opportunity to purchase artworks by highly renowned artists while also contributing to the betterment of society through art, photography and solidarity.
