12-01-09 Friends Without a Border had their charity art auction. It's one of my favorite nights in the city. I see artists whom I print for at Griffin Editions, and others whose work I admire. It's organization behind it is a creation of photographer Kenro Izu.
It's a positive fund raiser and excellent showcase from world-class photo artists. They print a gorgeous catalogue of the pieces for sale, and in the past few they've put my ad in it. I've done the event photography of this since 2003 working with friends Fumiyo and Akiko from the Friends group.
If people who like photography and the people who make it can come together and give back to the children who need it most, it's a wonderful thing!
