It’s sometimes difficult to find new artists whether you’re looking for new music, paintings that speak to you or crafts that suit your style. There are so many creative people contributing to the world of art everyday, the challenge is to find ones that inspire and challenge you. collect.give is a great way to start if you’re interested in photography and learning about new photographers.
Founded in 2009, collect.give features photographers who have committed to donate 100% of the profits from print sales to causes and charitable organizations they support. New prints are added every two weeks to the site’s vast collection of contemporary photographs with varying dimensions, edition sizes and pricing set by the photographer. Each purchase is directly through the photographer of the prints, whom although does not have official associations with the organizations to which funds are donated, is dedicated to pledge their earnings for their chosen charity.
Since its launch, collect.give has raised over $35,000 by selling over 700 limited edition photographs by 60 photographers. Organizations that have benefited range from the Animal Welfare Institute, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, School On Wheels and the UN World Food Programme just to name a few.
collect.give has also curated a book of the first 50 photographs collected and is available for purchase here with profits benefiting The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
