Filling your walls with chic eye candy that points to your curatorial style and understanding of high culture can skew pretty pricey in practice. Whether it’s paintings or woven hangs in question, even a small piece that hardly takes up any space can cost thousands and then some. So what’s a gal to do when she wants to turn her apartment into bona fide gallery for a fraction of the cost? Shop Magnum Photos‘ fall sale, that’s what.

The photo collective has teamed up with Aperture—a not-for-profit photography publisher—to sell signed and estate-stamped photos from more than 120 iconic photographers for just $100 through November 2. Like, photos you’d normally only see in a museum but couldn’t actually own. The collection, called “Crossings,” isn’t short of options to choose from, either. There are museum-quality prints available from Nan Goldin, Kwame Brathwaite, Bob Gruen, Eve Arnold, and more. Even Mick Rock’s famous shot of David Bowie is up for grabs.

This is a rare chance to own a signed print from @brucedavidsonphoto's seminal 'Brooklyn Gang' series! The print is available for $100 until Friday. Link in bio. . "You’re looking at Lefty and his girlfriend, members of a Brooklyn gang who referred to themselves as ‘The Jokers,’ on a trip to Bear Mountain State Park. This photograph is not meant to be risqué. These were young, teenage kids who had a great deal of spirit, energy and love in lives that were reckless, unstable and oftentimes dangerous. In the words of Pauley, who was a friend of gang member Bengie, ‘We didn’t come from dysfunctional families, the whole neighborhood was dysfunctional.’ . At the time, I thought it was a little strange to be photographing The Jokers on the way to a state park, a trip sponsored by the Youth Board. The gang was completely out of their element. No mean streets, not a worry on their minds, just time to explore themselves and their surroundings. They were free, and it was captivating.” – @brucedavidsonphoto . For the next 5 days only, buy over 120 signed or estate-stamped, museum-quality prints by the world's leading photographic artists on the theme of 'Crossings' for just $100 each.
