In the 1940s, Josephine Herrick was a budding photographer with a novel idea: put cameras in the hands of wounded WWII servicemen and guide them through the rehabilitative power of photography. On November 4 the Josephine Herrick Project, the organization that bears her name and fulfills her inspiration with today’s veterans, autistic children and others, will auction more than 40 dazzling images from celebrated modern photographers as a fundraiser. The 2013 Modern Masters in Photography Benefit Auction will take place at the Aperture Gallery, 547 West 27th Street, New York City. Tickets are $150 per person, available at http://jhproject.org/benefit/.
