The world’s best black photographers come together to raise funds for charities that support black advancement, while giving you the chance to own a beautiful print for just US$100.
Prompted by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, Tony McDade and countless other members of the black community at the hands of police and state violence, See In Black has been newly founded to raise funds to aid the charities inspiring long overdue change.
Eighty of the world’s best black photographers (including Micaiah Carter, Joshua Woods, Adrienne Raquel, Arielle Bobb-Willis, Texas Isaiah, Dana Scruggs and more) have teamed up to create a print sale to “support five key pillars of black advancement”: civil rights, education and arts, intersectionality, community building and criminal justice reform.
The Covid-19 pandemic inspired numerous photographic print sales by the world’s best known artists. The medium lends itself perfectly to be able to produce the works quickly and cheaply, enabling organisers to make the most for charities in need. See In Black follows suit, this time for a different cause but, again, giving buyers the rare chance to own highly collectable and valuable works for a fraction of their worth. While, at the same time, and most importantly, raising funds for those in need.
Jump on the website to support one of the most important movements of our generation. Ends 3 July.
