What are the Candy Digital NFTs?
Candy Digital and Getty Images started their collaboration with the ’70s Music & Culture Collection”. Now, they decided to shift their focus towards urban landscapes.
The City Diaries collection will include works from a diverse group of photographers. Specifically, it features the trailblazing Bert Hardy. This genius revolutionized the field by choosing a 35mm Leica over a traditional large-format press camera. It also features J.F. Davis, known for his striking and surrealistic depictions of sports and culture.
In curating “City Diaries,” Getty aimed to reflect the intricate richness of the cities featured. Consequently, the team handpicked a variety of images from the Getty Images Archive that encapsulate the unique spirit and culture of each metropolis.
Perks for the collectors
Additionally, Candy Digital is providing an intriguing offer for collectors. They can purchase packs of two images, each tied to a specific city in the collection. These packs present a blind minting experience, meaning collectors won’t know which two images they’ll receive until after the purchase.
For those with a complete set of all four images from a single city, a unique “Eiffel Tower” chaser asset awaits.
Candy Digital NFTs’ “City Diaries” will also include a free introductory digital photograph. This image is believed to be from the 1930s. It displays a young boy climbing onto another’s back to get a free view of a baseball game.
