For four days only, Magnum photography, a collective that has documented most of the world’s major events since the 1930s is hosting their annual square print sale.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase an iconic photograph by a Magnum photographer for only $100!
The theme ”Conditions of the Heart: On Empathy and Connection in Photography” was conceived by exploring Magnum co-founder David ‘Chim’ Seymour’s legacy of work, described as “unapologetically compassionate”. Each photograph chosen represents a strong emotional connection in the work of each photographer.
The photograph chosen by Jacob Aue Sobol was shot during his time in Guatemala where he was documenting the life of the Gomez Brito family. It depicts the strong bond between the boy Eliseo and his dog Domingo.
"I lived with The Gomez Brito family in a remote mountainous area of Guatemala for two months in 2005. Each day I took part in the daily work on their land growing corn and beans. Juanita and Andreas had seven children; Roberto, Davide, Faustino, Eliseo, Diego, Elisabeth and Maria, and also a dog named Domingo. Domingo would follow ten-year-old Eliseo every morning when he walked the long route over the mountain to tend the horses. Often on the way back old Domingo got really tired and Eliseo would carry him the rest of the way home.”
