By donating their prints to Pictures for Purpose, a foundation that raises money for urgent causes through the medium of photography, the contributors are helping to raise money for victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. Among the contributors are artists who have personal connections to the tragedy. The funds raised will go to Ahbap and The White Helmets, two volunteer organizations helping with recovery and reconstruction in the countries.
The first iteration of the project raised funds for a Dutch food bank during the first COVID-19 lockdown, and the second raised funds for the UN's environment program. The third and most recent project supported Ukraine through World Central Kitchen by providing meals in the wake of humanitarian crisis.
The prints in this fourth edition are available for purchase today through March 30th.
