Next-generation digital collectible company Candy Digital and visual media company Getty Images have joined forces once again to release a second collection of premium digital collectibles after their first collection three months ago.
The new collection, “City Diaries: Visual Narratives From Around the World,” was released on June 1. It showcases snapshots from seven iconic cities around the globe — New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Mexico City, Istanbul and Mumbai.
In this exclusive collaboration, the two companies offer collectors a chance to acquire premium images of the metropolises at an affordable price. The series itself focuses on preserving the art, culture, and history of the seven cities for generations to come through blockchain technology.
The City Diaries collection is available at $25 per pack on the Candy Digital website until 5 p.m. on June 30.
The City Diaries collection showcases a diverse lineup of photographers with distinct styles and contributions. Among them is Bert Hardy, who pioneered the use of a 35mm Leica over a traditional large-format press camera, and self-taught photographer Kurt Hutton. Another featured photographer is H.F. Davis, known for his unique style of humanist photography, especially his sports and culture shots.
Getty undertook the curation of City Diaries to capture each city’s complexity and richness. The team carefully selected images from the Getty Images archives, ensuring each photograph represented the spirit of its respective metropolis.
Candy Digital also offers a special package deal for collectors. The special packs contain two images, each representing a specific city from the collection. There is an element of surprise in these special packs as collectors will not be able to know which two images they will receive.
On top of the special package deal, Candy Digital will reward collectors who assemble all four images of a particular city with a unique “Eiffel Tower” chaser asset as a reward.
Additionally, Candy Digital introduces a special promotion allowing photography enthusiasts to mint a complimentary introductory digital photograph for a limited time. The free digital piece is believed to be from the 1930s, depicting a scene where one boy climbs onto another’s back to catch a glimpse of a baseball game.
The two companies’ first collaborative project, the “’70s Music & Culture collection,” digitally transported rare images of 1970s music icons into the realm of web3, allowing collectors to acquire them in a digital format.
Like the latest collection, the ’70s Music & Culture collection showcased images from Getty Images archives, spanning back to the era of the ’70s. Each collection offered 60 single-image digital collectibles that celebrate legendary musicians such as Elvis, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix.
Volume 1 of the collection introduces photographs captured by six talented photographers of that generation, which were Don Paulsen, David Redfern, Fin Costello, Richard Creamer, Steve Morley and Peter Keegan. The collection was available for purchase until March 21.
Candy Digital and Getty Images also offered collectors an opportunity to mint a complimentary limited-time NFT. The special photo, titled “It’s Time To Light The Lights,” featured a shot from 1935 and was available to mint for free until March 15.
Shifting their focus from the realm of music, Candy Digital and Getty Images now venture into urban landscapes, presenting photography enthusiasts with a fusion of history and culture, as well as inviting collectors to explore the narratives embedded within the seven bustling metropolises.
