In less than three days, auction site catawiki.com and NGO WarChild will set up a photo auction, called ‘Eye For All’. From 9 to 16 November, you'll be able to get your hands on fine art prints of “some of the best photographers of The Netherlands”. I’ve also been asked to donate a picture!
All yields will go to WarChild's 'Safe Spaces' project, which creates safe environments where children can process their negative experience, often caused by war. Children who haven't gone to school for a longer period of time, are getting further training, focused on catching up and entering the regular education system again.
The Eye for All photo auction is an initiative of Annet de Graaf, commissioned by Catawiki. For this project, Annet approached 75 Dutch photographers, such as Kadir van Lohuizen, Elspeth Diederix, Corbino, Nick van Tiem, Eddy van Wessel, Raymond Rutting, Jimmy Nelson and Brooks Kraft. She also asked me to donate one of my pictures (see below), which will also be for sale - the starting price for this print will be 250 euros.
