Photographers including Mario Sorrenti, Theo Wenner, and David Sims have listed works to support the organizations' mission
The 1K Project, founded by Alex Iskold and Chrysi Philalithes, has a simple mission: to give US citizens the tools they need to directly support families on the ground in Ukraine. The organization is volunteer-led; it verifies applications from Ukrainians in need, providing them with a thousand dollars to spend on basic necessities. For the next two weeks, Art Partner strives to support that goal, selling 15 of its photographers’ works as numbered editions of 50. Each print is listed at £155, with Art Partner matching the cost of the first five sales of each piece.
Art is never from politics; it has the power to question authority, to start conversations, and to effect social change. It’s something the participating photographers—Mario Sorrenti, Theo Wenner, David Sims, Zoë Ghertner, and Harley Weir, among others—know to be true. Their selections bear the colors of the Ukrainian flag, reminding buyers to consider the value of generosity, and the ultimate influence behind creative work.
