Photographers are always on the front lines of capturing history. And right now, the U.S. is in a pivotal moment. That’s why Magnum Photos and Vogue joined forces to support the NAACP with their limited-run offering of signed or estate-stamped, museum-quality, prints from over 100 visual artists.

Called “Solidarity,” the 6x6 square print sale begins July 27 and will last just seven days. While photos range in style and year taken, they all have the common theme of coming together during tumultuous times. Examples include Bob Henriques’ image of the crowds at the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom led by Martin Luther King, and Bruce Davidson’s 1965 photo of protestors marching from Selma to Montgomery.

More modern images are from Miranda Barnes, who marked the 50th anniversary of Luther King’s assassination, and Peter van Agtmael’s coverage of the fallout from the killing of George Floyd. The last portrait that President Obama sat for in the White House is also available.

“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,” Magnum wrote in a release.

Incredibly, these images will be available for $100 and will not be made available outside the sale window. Magnum Photographers and Vogue will also be donating 50% of their proceeds to the NAACP.

Becoming a Magnum photographer is a coveted honor in the industry. Magnum Photos was founded in 1947 in Paris as an artists’ co-operative and continues its rigorous process of self-selection. And Vogue has long had a reputation as a cultural barometer with strong imagery from the world’s top photographers.
