The New Icons

This curation of fine prints presents new works to the Shop, many of which stem from a pivotal series in a photographer’s oeuvre, such as Matt Black’s The Geography of Poverty, for example, or Mark Power’s Shipping Forecast.

The selection spans iconic images of celebrities (Muhammad Ali and Marilyn Monroe) to those of locals in Afghanistan, India and a disco in England. It includes a classic image of the New York City skyline as well as a serene Italian landscape. Both Herbert List seaside images, dating from the 1930s, are at once meditative and wrought with symbolism, indicative of List’s practice at large.

Traversing geography and subject matter, this collection is a small window into the diverse photographic practices of Magnum photographers.
