We're all aware of the devastation from the earthquake that hit Haiti's capital in January. Many countries and organizations have responded with heartfelt humanitarian aid, pledging funds and doing whatever they can to assist in the aide and re-building of Haiti's capital. The people of Port au Prince have lost so much and still need help, so here's what you can do...buy art.
Through the direction of Heart Art Productions, along with Sascha + Stephen MALLON, run red creative and agmac - many renowned photographers and artist's have donated works - for an auction to benefit the Haiti relief efforts. All proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
Visit the HeART for HAITI website to browse and bid on the works. Over 150 works by artists, such as: Stephen Mallon, Brian Finke, Hans Neleman, Martin Schoeller, Philip Toledano, Carey Kirkella, Greg Miller, Rodney White, Elizabeth Fleming, Jon Feinstein, Andrew Hetherington, and Paul Strand...to name a few. A photograph, from my series 'Migration', is included in the lot as well. (Lot# 015)
If you're in the NYC area this Wednesday, June 16th, you can head over to the Aperture Foundation's gallery to view the work and join the benefit party.
