Supporting Our Artists x Photographers (and, more)!
Photography is a form of art that I am rather accustomed to. Raised in a home of art collectors, my aunt A.L. Steiner is also a world renown, legendary, provocative artist who through her images, videos and montage’s that you may have seen around the world, has shaped conversations around politics, sexuality, the environment through her lens. She just received the Guggenheim Fellowship, too. Anyways – this piece is a ‘lil round up on helping. Here, you can assist the artists directly, by buying their work, giving a donation or even helping a hospital, neglected by our government.
Below – Check out Lifeboat, helping photographers stay afloat. Then, there is World Red Eye, a social photo agency that if you live in Miami – you know. The guys who work there, need our help. They are so good to us, let us be good to them. And, lastly, there is an opportunity for you to help Elmhurst Hospital in Queens by buying prints by some of our favorite photographers (96, to be exact)! Take a look at what I have prepared below, and do what you can. XO.
When reports of COVID-19 starting coming out of China, it felt so far away. To think that cities all over the world would have to shut down simultaneously would have never crossed my mind. During Art Basel, only a couple of months ago, me and 80,000 other people were strolling Wynwood and Miami Beach looking at incredible art from people all over the world. Who would have thought that we would be here, in isolation, while there are hundreds of thousands of people who are sick and many others have lost their jobs due to the inability to work during the pandemic? This group of people includes photographers, who travel to the far corners of the globe to report important news, or find poetic moments within our own communities, but who have seen all of their work, and income, disappear thanks to the virus.
