Magnum Photos is an international photographic cooperative owned by its photographer-members, with offices in New York City, Paris, London and Tokyo. It was founded in Paris in 1947. This gorgeous piece of photographic art was sold during their "Works of Imagination" sale, in cooperation with Aperture that was held for seven days in October of 2020. Prints were limited in number to only the prints sold during these seven days (though not physically numbered). We have had it professionally matted and framed with UV Plexi and all archival materials. NOTE: our framed view has some reflections in the photo - they are not on the image (see unframed image).

From Richard Misrach - “In the past, I have been able to photograph the glorious skies and views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge from my deck. During the recent spate of fires, beginning in August, I have been confined to my home, and the photographs I make are taken from the same spot as the earlier series, but as dense smoke renders the Golden Gate invisible, I have focused on my more immediate surroundings. There were days when the smoke created day for night, post-apocalyptic views right out of a sci-fi Hollywood movie. The most obvious and undeniable culprit here is climate change, whose impacts are increasing at an exponential rate. The future has arrived. In an interview given in her last years, Dorothea Lange beckoned the next generation of photographers to document civilization’s advancing effects on California, framing it as the New California. She couldn’t have anticipated climate change, but she was worried about the detrimental consequences of settlement and growth. is series is dedicated to her remarkable foresight.”
