Photography Auction for FT Seasonal Appeal 2014 in aid of the International Rescue Committee

03 December 2014
Metro is thrilled to be supporting the Financial Times Seasonal Appeal 2014 producing prints for the charity photography auction which takes place at Getty Images Gallery in London in aid of The International Rescue Committee (IRC). Sotheby’s auctioneer, Adrian Biddell will be hosting the auction on Wednesday December 3rd.

The auction features many limited edition and one-off prints including many printed and framed by Metro. ‘Vipoh’ is one such image featuring a former street gang leader King Vipoh, taken by Panos photographer Adam Patterson, as part of a long-term project on youth gang culture, commissioned by the Royal Photographic Society

One of the star lots is a limited edition print of an image by Cecil Beaton taken in April 1956, showing the painter Lucian Freud and his then-wife, Caroline Blackwood,  at their country retreat, Coombe Priory in Dorset. Other works being auctioned include images by Steve McCurry and Tom Hunter, and a limited-edition photograph of Kate Moss by the late Corinne Day, signed by the model.

Funds raised from the sale of the prints will go towards the IRC’s work which strives tirelessly to save and rebuild lives in the wake of conflict and disaster in more than 30 countries around the world.

FT appeals have raised over £14 million for charities over the last eight years, including Action Against Hunger, Camfed, Room to Read, Sightsavers, The Global Fund for Children, Wateraid and World Child Cancer. Running from November to January the annual appeal raises money and increases awareness of the charity through editorial coverage of its work.
