The Power of Photography

We all know the power of photography to tell a story, or evoke a mood, but two events in New York this month will use the power of photography to raise funds for important causes.

On Monday, April 9, Swann President and Principal Auctioneer Nicholas Lowry will conduct a live auction on behalf of PROOF: Media for Social Justice, an organization that uses visual media to further education, research and advocacy surrounding human rights violations around the world.

On Monday, April 23, Swann Vice President and Photography Department Director, Daile Kaplan will be the auctioneer for the Annual Photography Auction & Benefit held by inMotion, which offers hope to low-income women who need free legal services in matrimonial, family and immigration law. 

The PROOF event will be held at Splashlight Studios, and features works by contemporary artists David Arky, Bruce Davidson, Mark Seliger, Trujillo-Paumier and others.

inMotion's auction and benefit will take place at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers, and includes classic photographs by Diane Arbus, Ernst Haas, Saul Leiter, Ruth Orkin and more.
