From Monday, July 27th until Sunday, August 2nd, the legendary photo agency Magnum Photos and Vogue joins forces to raise funds for the NAACP, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
All the artists involved, and the archival photographs selected and offered for sale, explore the theme of unity and solidarity in a year of social upheaval that has seen protests related to the Black Lives Matter movement come to the fore around the world.
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.
Several photographs depict the civil rights movement in the United States and the ongoing struggle for racial equality, exploring moments in history, from the beginning to the present day, when human ties and the mobilization of the masses have sought to bring about positive change by fighting shoulder to shoulder.
The prints, all measuring 15.24×15.24 cm, in museum quality and signed, will be sold for a single week for $100 and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the NAACP, one of the first and most influential civil rights associations in the United States founded in 1909.
Here you will find a selection of our favorites, but we recommend you visit the Magnum Shop so you don’t miss any of the photographs of international artists such as Daniel Arnold, Christopher Anderson, Peter van Agtmael, Eve Arnold, Miranda Barnes, Matt Black, June Canedo de Souza, Bruce Davidson, Raymond Depardon, W. Eugene Smith, Stuart Franklin, Harry Gruyaert, Hassan Hajjaj, Bob Henriques, Yael Martinez, Eli Reed, Richie Shazam, Alec Soth, Newsha Tavakolian, Shirin Neshat, Larry Towell, Ed Templeton, and many others.
