You could own an Ian Berry, Tom Stoddard, or Tim Page print in this charity auction for Médecins Sans Frontières
66 prints by 42 photographers are to be auctioned to raise money to raise funds for Médecins Sans Frontières’s (MSF) COVID 19 fund. The auction will take place online on 15 November and features work by a list of well-known photographers include war photographer Tim Page, Magnum member Ian Berry, and photojournalist Tom Stoddart. Other famous photographers featured in the sale include music legend Jill Furmanovsky, portrait photographer Clive Arrowsmith, and street specialist Nick Turpin.
The sale is the brainchild of members of the Eyewitness Collective – a group of photographers from around the world, set up earlier this year to spotlight the importance of photographic prints.
The sale will be run by Bamfords, under the hammer of TV antiques expert James Lewis. The auction will commence at 5pm GMT on 15 November (midday Eastern Time). The full catalogue, and instructions on how to bid, can be found on the Bamfords website.
