Silent Auction To Raise Money for Documentary Photography
The auction will feature images from such nationally and internationally known photographers as Alex Webb, Art Streiber, Brian Lanker, David Hume Kennerly, Don Barletti, Douglas Kirkland, Gerd Ludwig, Greg Gorman, Mary Ellen Mark, Nevada Wier, Phil Borges, Robert Farber, Ron Haviv and Sam Abell.
The auction will benefit Project 5: Photography for Social Change, which supports talented photojournalists and builds documentary photography through grants, exhibits and publications. (See images: http://www.photo4change.org/silentauction.html.)
Project 5’s silent auctions will raise money for a five-year series of photo documentary projects on five pressing social issues: child labor, educational access, health care, immigration, economic globalization. The February 2010 auction will raise funds to complete Dean’s current collaborative project, Child Labor and the Global Village.
"Photographers look through their lenses at society and the environment, but they also see through their hearts," says Dean, the Los Angeles documentary photographer who founded Project 5. "As the economy takes a toll on the traditional patrons of documentary photography, such as newspapers and magazines, new support is needed. We must not lose a generation of important stories."
Pre-viewing: Photographs will be available for pre-viewing on Friday and Saturday (February 19 & 20) prior to the auction. The $50 entrance ticket will be counted toward the price of a photograph. Tickets can be purchased in advance. Call 310-392-0909 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
February 20, 2010, 7:00-10:00 P.M.
