New Photography Site to Support Doctors Without Borders
Unlike a lot of pastimes, hobbies and professions, photography has strong connections to global causes. Some of the strongest and most famous images ever captured are of war-torn cities and impoverished nations. A new website has been created that does more than just show us the problem, it offers a solution.
Images Without Borders was created to support Doctors Without Borders, a program that provides medical aid to people in countries that need it. It features photographs from one hundred and twenty-five photographers including Peter Carey, Tomas Van Houtryve, Martin Vargas, Jeffrey Lynch, Scott Wood, Julie Dermansky, George Long, Kit Wohl, Gunther Deichman, and Ian Talbot.
These photographers have donated their work to be sold as gallery-quality prints. Prints can be had for prices ranging from $50 to $100 depending on size. All proceeds (after the cost of printing) go to support Doctors Without Borders.
This is also a great chance for photographers to support a cause they believe in, says co-founder Stacy Ericson. ""When a disaster strikes, artists often have very little money to donate to charitable causes," she says. "What they have instead is their artwork."
