What is the print sale about?
‘Crossings’ is the name of this Square Print Sale, which is being presented by Magnum Photos and Aperture Foundation.
The two organisations already have a long-standing history, and they've collaborated on publications and events through the decades.
There's many shared themes in the selection of 100 images, including selfhood and identity, and wider topics such as migration.
‘Crossings' asks questions about the human ability to move, transform and build connections.
Who are the two organisations?
Magnum Photos is a photo agency that was founded in Paris in 1947 as an artists’ co-operative by four pioneering photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, David “Chim” Seymour, and George Rodger.
Aperture is the world's leading not-for-profit photography publisher. Founded in 1952 by photographers and writers including Minor White, Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and Beaumont Newhall to serve as "common ground for the advancement of photography.”
