Magnum Photo has recently announced their latest Square Print Sale (Turning Points), where over 100 signed or estate-stamped, museum-quality 6x6” prints by Magnum and The Everyday Projects’ photographers will be available for US$100.
Turning Points represents the first collaboration between Magnum Photos – the world’s longest-running photographic and artistic co-operative – and The Everyday Projects, a global network that began as Everyday Africa in 2012. Everyday Africa set out to challenge the media-driven stereotypes that affect the continent by featuring images of everyday life made by a community of contributing photographers that live or work extensively on the continent.
Images available for sale will relate to, or capture events that changed the course of history, society, a life, or a practice. Turning points can occur on a scale that spans at extremes; the global or national, and the most personal of moments.
On the sale’s theme, the co-founders of The Everyday Projects, Austin Merrill and Peter DiCampo explained, “Turning Points is the ideal theme for our first collaboration with Magnum Photos. The Everyday Projects was born of a desire to use photography to encourage people to change the way they think about the world. The Square Print Sale is an opportunity for our photographers to showcase that effort, bringing stories they care about to a new and wide audience.”
The Turning Points Square Print Sale runs from Monday, 6 April, 9AM EST to Sunday, 12 April, 6PM EST. Visit magnumphotos.com/shop.
About Magnum Photos
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. The legendary photo agency continues to shape photographic practice and maintains its original values of uncompromising excellence, truth, respect and independence, representing an idiosyncratic mix of journalist, artist and storyteller. Magnum photographers share a vision to chronicle world events, people, places and culture with a powerful narrative that defies convention, shatters the status quo, redefines history and transforms lives.
About The Everyday Projects
Everyday Africa began in 2012 in Ivory Coast as an effort to rise above the media-driven stereotypes that plague the continent. Following its viral success, an international movement began as like-minded storytellers worldwide created their own @Everyday feeds on Instagram that use photography to combat cliché, promote local norms, and celebrate global commonalities - forming The Everyday Projects, a non-profit organization. The group now covers regions from Latin America to Asia, Australia to the Middle East, Mumbai to the Bronx — covering topics spanning climate change, mass incarceration, and more. Everyday photographers work with the world’s leading international media outlets, and the photography of The Everyday Projects is featured regularly worldwide in publications.
