StreetShootr’s Take

Matt’s prints are £100 or approximately $152 USD. A little more than the Magnum Square Prints until you do the math… The image area of a horizontal 35mm shot in the Magnum Square Print sale is 5.5″x3.667″ or 20.1685 square inches. That’s $4.96 per square inch. The image area for Matt’s prints sale is 6″x9″ or 54 square inches. That’s only $2.81 per square inch. You see? Matt’s prints are a bargain conpared to those Magnum prints!! I’m going to need to get all four.

All kidding aside, each of the images in the Matt Stuart print sale is popular enough to be considered iconic and this is a great chance to own a piece of modern street photography history at a price that’s an absolute bargain. If you have any disposable income at all this would be a great way to spend it!

Me? I’m leaning towards those lips!

  • I know this might be an inside joke but why does it HAVE to be rectangular? And these examples here are rather still-lives, not genuine street photographs per se.

    • Hi Dusty,

      Not so much an inside joke a clear reference to Magnum’s square print sale that’s also running right now. Many people wondered why those prints were on square pieces of paper… Printing on square makes the print “seem” bigger but the image area suffers.

      I agree that two of Matt’s images are definitely still lives but they’re still candid and serendipitous images found on the street. Trafalgar Square, 2014 is pure street – it was even the cover of the Street Photography Now book back in 2012!

      However you define the images… They’re some of the most iconic images shot by Matt Stuart and that’s got to count for something!
