The charity sale of Ukrainian and Slovak photography
The charity sale of Slovak and Ukrainian photography ”Photo for Ukraine” continues online until May 1, 2022. The Slovak online magazine Dokument in cooperation with the international festival of contemporary photography Odesa Photo Days has started the project ”Photography for Ukraine” — the charity sale of Slovak and Ukrainian photography. The project is mainly aimed at supporting photographers, artists and the cultural scene in Ukraine. More than 30 artists from Slovakia and Ukraine participated and provided their photographs for sale.
You can buy works on the Dokument Magazin website for 3 weeks from April, 10 to May 1, 2022. The recommended minimal price of one photograph is 69 EUR. However, you are welcome to contribute more, the final decision is up to you. All funds raised will be donated to aid Ukrainian photography, thanks to the project’s partners SYNCHRONIX, a.s. and Bright, s.r.o. who financially supported the printing of the photographs.
More works will be added subsequently. All funds raised will be donated for the support of Ukraine. Part of the funds will be transferred via a partner organization (NGO Art Travel, organizer of Odesa Photo Days) to the humanitarian organization Kharkiv With You, part will be used for direct relief to the families of Ukrainian artists most badly struck by the atrocities of war.
