Crossing Borders Picture Fund

Syrian children play in a junkyard of old, abandoned and destroyed vehicles at the entrance to the Reyhanli tent city on February 26, 2012.  As the year old rebellion against the rule of Bashar Al-Assad continues just across the border in Syria, Turkey has seen a continued influx of refugees from the Syrian conflict but has not granted them refugee status and instead considers them to be "guests" of Turkey, the sign of another conflict fissure located precariously close to the pipeline route.

CROSSING BORDERS PICTURE FUND

Crossing Borders Picture Fund is a print auction to raise funds towards the current refugee/migrant crisis.

It is a reaction by a group of photographers to support families being uprooted from their homes in a desperate and urgent need for safety and a better life – many dying in the process of doing so.

Not since the World Wars of the first half of the 20th century have we seen such an influx of people crossing international borders in a struggle to survive in order to avert death.

This is a not for profit effort to engage with photography on a different level and for a good cause. All money raised will go towards the printing of the images and raising money towards an organization helping refugees/migrants on a major and impactful scale.

We hope you will join us.
