NEW YORK, NY.- Hidden, the October 2019 Magnum Square Print Sale in Partnership with Aperture, brings together a selection of over 100 images by international photographic artists.

The Autumn 2019 theme explores the idea of what the photographer sees that is 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 are otherwise overlooked. From remote societies to elite fraternities, isolated places to objects so common we don’t stop to look at them, photographs reveals 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 the theme.

In some cases, it is the images themselves that are hidden: Thomas Hoepker and the Inge Morath Estate share previously overlooked images from their archives, including an unseen portrait of Muhammad Ali. Other images actively obscure or conceal, such as the identity of a masked rebel in Nicaragua photographed by Susan Meiselas, or the anonymous protester in Don McCullin’s photograph.

Perspective also plays a role in many of the images in this curation, as photographers play with unexpected angles in order to make us look at things anew—as in selections by Philippe Halsman, Steve McCurry and Stephen Shore—or reflect on the allure of what they cannot see, like light emanating from behind a garage door in Todd Hido’s image.

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 Magnum’s 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.
