The devastation as a result of the tsunami in Japan last week has triggered some incredibly moving photographs available across the internet. It has always truly impressed me at how powerful a news image can be; that one image can provoke people to travel thousands of miles or donate large amounts of money just to provide a little help to people suffering on the other side of the globe. That is one of the main reasons I became a photographer, and can only hope that some day one of my images will move millions.
Unfortunately, I can’t be in Japan taking photos, or just physically helping these people in need. Instead though, I have decided to sell prints of mine and donate the proceeds to Japanese aid via the Red Cross. Any print available on my website or flickr account will be available for sale. Hit the jump for pricing.
8″ x 12″ – $75
12″ x 18″ – $125
16″ x 24″ – $175
Contact me to order, or inquire about more sizing. The back of every print will be personally signed by me.
All proceeds will go to the Red Cross unless you have a specific charity of you would like to donate to, in which case please specify.
