Pics for the Kids

100% of the proceeds of this sale go to Avenues for Justice -- a programme aimed at finding more effective ways of youth crime prevention in New York. “It costs about $353,000 a year to put a youth in a New York State juvenile detention centre for a year, and only 25 per cent to 50 per cent remain crime-free when they get out,” the team behind the programme say. “It costs only $5,200 a year to keep a youth in Avenues for Justice, and 90 per cent of program graduates stay out of prison.” Find out more about Avenues for Justice here.

The list of contributing artists to Pics for the Kids is one of the best we’ve seen yet, including Inez and Vinoodh, Frank Lebon, Ib Kamara, Luke Gilford, Patia Borja, Campbell Addy, Brianna Capozzi, Pierre Ange Carlotti, Petra Collins, Johnny Dufort, Charlotte Wales, Leilah Weinraub, Richie Shazam and more.

Prints are available at Pics for the Kids’s website. Every print is sold for $100, with all proceeds going directly to Avenues for Justice.

Three collectible prints by Joel Meyerowitz

The chance to purchase the work of New York street photography pioneer Joel Meyerowitz is too good to miss, especially when helping support an organisation fighting racial injustice. In partnership with Aperture, he’s selling three prints from his archive -- taken in New York, Paris and St. Louis, Missouri -- the proceeds of which will be split between Equal Justice Initiative, an organisation that is doing critical work to challenge racial and economic injustice, as well as Aperture’s not-for-profit educational, public, and online programming, and Joel’s studio, for the undertaking the project of scanning 140,000 previously unseen Kodachrome slides from his early years.

Each signed 5x7-inch print will cost $120.20. The set of three will be offered at a special price of $300. The sale will run for ten days, from July 16 through July 26. Check the Aperture website for more information.
