In collaboration with Vogue, Magnum Photos just launched a massive print sale with half of all proceeds being donated to the NAACP. Included in the collection of archival photographs are Philippe Halsman’s iconic portrait of Angela Davis, Thomas Hoepker’s shot of Muhammed Ali, and dozens of other images that fall under the theme of solidarity. Many of the pieces explore the power of human bonds, about which organizers say:
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.
All 6 x 6-inch prints are signed or estate-stamped, museum-quality, and available for $100. Find some of Colossal’s favorites below—which includes Ernest Cole’s glimpse into South African life under apartheid and Cristina de Middel’s piece that captures a Tijuana pole vaulter mid-air—and shop the full collection before the sale ends at 6 p.m. EST on August 6.
