Magnum’s latest Square Prints sale focuses on freedom

For the next five days only, Magnum Photos is holding another of its Square Print sales, where it sells a series of postcard-sized prints for $100 each. The sale this time is on the theme of freedom

Magnum’s latest Square Print sale draws on the 50th anniversary of 1968, and the seismic societal and political shifts – all in the name of freedom – that took place globally that year.

The set of photographs included in the sale draw on this notion of freedom but allow for a wide interpretation of the theme, with iconic images of political protest from Robert Capa, Stuart Franklin and Bruce Davidson appearing alongside deeply personal images that symbolise creative freedom.

As with previous Magnum Square Print sales, the works will be available for five days only (June 4-8). The photographs are printed on 6 x 6″ archival paper and are signed by the photographer or estate-stamped by the estate. Each print is $100 (a bargain compared to the usual price of a Magnum Photos print).

Below are a selection from the over 70 works included in the sale.
