Magnum Photos continues its 75th-anniversary celebrations with the second in a series of three Square Print Sales. 

‘Now’ runs until Sunday  October 23 and follows ‘Precedents’, which took place in March. The series will conclude with ‘Vital Signs’ next spring. 

Together, the three sales offer a fascinating look back over the history of the iconic photo agency, which was founded in 1947. 

This latest sale is a collaboration between Magnum and The Photographers’ Gallery in London: 31 photographers who work with the gallery are contributing images, which takes the overall total of prints in the sale to more than 100. 

These sales run for just one week, so you’ll need to act quickly to own a museum-quality print. 

The ‘Now’ Square Print Sale is open until Sunday 23 October at 23.59 EST (20.59 PST/04.59 BST Monday 24 October).

Photographers and their estates were asked to select an image from their archive that stands out for them now – perhaps an image felt to be pivotal in their career; an image that calls to mind an experience or moment that has stood the test of time; or an image within the Magnum archive that they feel captures their photographic voice. 

And the results of this selection process look set to make this Square Print Sale one of the best ones yet, with works spanning eight decades from the likes of Eve Arnold, Olivia Arthur, Robert Capa, Carolyn Drake, Leonard Freed, Richard Kalvar, Steve McCurry, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Alec Soth, and Alex Webb. 

Highlights from the selection of 31 prints by The Photographers’ Gallery include Evgenia Arbugaeva, Dorothy Bohm, Julie Cockburn, Chris Dorley Brown, Alma Haser, Martina Lindqvist, Pentti Sammallahti, and Luke Stephenson. 

An exhibition of the full collection of prints is open now at The Photographers’ Gallery (16-18 Ramilies Street, London W1F 7LW) until the closing of the sale on October 23.
