Protester, Cuban Missile Crisis. 6 × 6 print. Hand signed by Bruce Davidson on the rear of the photograph. In 1962, when the world nearly went to war again over the Cuban Missile Crisis, there were massive demonstrations in Londons Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, where this shot was taken. This one man broke from the rabble of many thousands trying to make a run for 10 Downing Street, the prime ministers residence. Police formed a cordon to prevent him and to hold back ensuing crowds. So he made his political statement by sitting himself down in front of them. What slogan was he brandishing on that banner? What happened to him? His statement may have made headlines, but he remains forever anonymous, caught up entirely in his own activism. The Magnum Square Print Sale in Partnership with Aperture presents Hidden. The Autumn 2019 Magnum Square Print Sale in Partnership with Aperture brings together a selection of over 120 images by international photographic artists, exploring the idea of what the photographer sees that is otherwise hidden. Magnum Photos and Aperture have a long, shared history, spanning many collaborations on publications and events through the decades. Here, for the third time, Magnum Photos has invited a roster of artists published by Aperture to participate in the Square Print Sale alongside Magnums own photographers. The resulting curation is a celebration of the diversity of practices within photography, offering a plethora of unique interpretations of the common theme. The edition is not limited by quantity, but limited by time. EST and November 1, 2019, at 11:59 p. All Magnum Square Prints are signed or estate-stamped on an archival label (to ensure quality and preservation) that is affixed to the back of the print, and includes each images accompanying text. Magnum was founded in 1947 as an artists co-operative by four pioneering photographers; Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, David Chim Seymour, and George Rodger. In essence, it allows the artists to have creative freedom. The Autumn 2019 theme explores the idea of what the photographer sees that might be otherwise hidden. Since its beginnings, photography has functioned in part as a vehicle for showing what is neither accessible nor visible to the majority of us, as well as shedding light on the things around us that might otherwise be overlooked. From remote societies to elite fraternities, isolated places to objects so common we dont stop to look at them, photographs reveal hidden things, places and lives. Artists, too, often describe their own private spaces and inner lives as integral to their work. Each participating photographer offers their own interpretation of this theme, opening up rich avenues of exploration, and a wide-spanning visual dialogue between the visual artists involved. It is within the photographers hands to use light to hide or reveal their subjects identity. In Bruce Davidsons image from Subway the subjects face is rendered obscure by shadow, yet his image remains brilliant: His glowing skin tone seemed to match the chains around his neck Meanwhile, the two boys in Gregory Crewdsons picture are framed by a stream of light that leaves them hidden among cinematic lights and haze, awaiting their moment on set. For Alex Webb, his image of a boy in Brooklyn, half-hidden in the shadows, reflects his discovery that the unexpected, the unknown, or the secret heart of the known may sometimes lie just around the corner in our home borough. Elsewhere, we see the purposeful concealment of identity by the subjects, such as the masked Nicaraguan rebel in Susan Meiselas image: A mask, not to hide / but to disguise / to draw on a past / to create a future. Masksperhaps the most pervasive token of anonymityare to be seen elsewhere in the selection too: Micha bar-Ams own family, clad in gas masks during an Iraqi Scud missile attack; the masquerades in images by Robert Capa and Phyllis Galembo; and Mikhael Subotzkys image of masked horsemen at an agricultural show in an Afrikaner township. Perspective also plays a role, as in Don McCullins 1962 image of an unknown demonstrator. His statement may have made headlines, but he remains forever anonymous, caught up entirely in his own activism, writes McCullin.
