Photography documents historical events but now it can offer tangible action to heal the devastating earthquakes and tsunamis that have occurred in Japan last Friday, March 11th, 2011.
Aline Smith of Lenscratch teamed up with The Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in Atlanta and the Wallspace Gallery in Santa Barbara to auction off limited edition prints (at the quantity of 10 each) priced at $50. Photographers from around the world have donated their prints and all the proceeds will go to Direct Relief International and Habitat for Humanity in aid of Japan’s recovery.
When natural disasters hit, humanity finds its way to recover by helping each other. The online auction can be found at Wallspace Gallery. While some editions are sold out, there are new images constantly updated.
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in Atlanta, GA will host a silent auction on March 19th, 2011 from 11am-5pm during the Westside Arts District monthy Art Stroll. Winning bidders will be notified at 6pm on March 19th. Bids will be taken at the gallery and also by absentee bidding. Absentee bids can be sent to [email protected] from 11am-5pm (Eastern Standard Time).
Help spread the word during a time of need.
