We are so incredibly thankful for all of you who came out to see the 2nd Annual Photographic Exhibition for Portrait Equality in Paddington last Wednesday. It was a great turnout with many of the local photographers present for interesting discussions, members of the art and travel community to stoke our passion for travel, beautiful images to behold and bid on, a large quantity of wine, beer and nudie juice consumed, so many awesome raffle prizes from our sponsors to take home, and so many interesting people to meet. I also want to thank Louise Hawson for the warm opening to the bidding and for all of you who have told me how this project has made you think a bit differently about the way photography can fit into the life of those you meet when you travel.
200+ Attendees in 3 hours
14 Portrait Equality photographers present for storytelling
25 silent auction bids out of 62 won a print
Enough funds raised to send our 5 cameras out into the world 10 out of the 12 months next year!
We also have a few more books left, so be quick if you didn’t get one on the night – they are full of the amazing stories and images from last year and are only $40 (pickup Surry Hills) or $50 (includes AU postage).
Thanks again to our sponsors and to Reni Indrawan Photography for the great images documenting our night below.
