Whilst in the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, 17 photographers from different parts of the world decided to collect a series of prints, as well as the works of invited colleagues, in order to put them up for auction, according to The Guardian. Photographers planned to give the collected money to the fight against coronavirus.
The initiators of the project were delighted with how many photographers supported their idea. As a result, 66 works from 42 authors were put up for the charity auction, including Ian Berry, Jason Bell, Tom Stoddart and Paul Lowe.
All the collected money will be donated to the fund for combating COVID-19 Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). The promotion will last until November 15.
“The art of photography has been the choice for the wise investor for the past decade. It is a great honour to team up with some of the world’s greatest photographers to help the world face its biggest challenge in over a century” – James Lewis, CEO of Bamfords.
