The only thing better than buying a fine photograph for your collection, is buying one and knowing the funds are going to help women and children in need. On Monday, April 23, Daile Kaplan, Swann VP and Director of Photographs, will be the auctioneer at the 2012 Annual Photography & Benefit Auction for inMotion-- a non profit that provides free legal services to low-income women in New York City.
Among prominent photographers featured in the auction are Diane Arbus, Julie Blackmon, Elliott Erwitt and Saul Leiter. Bidders will also be able to compete for a private portrait commission by Harry Benson, the legendary photojournalist.
