The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has claimed the lives of tens of thousands of people, and displaced many millions of people, plunging the surviving Gaza populace into urgent need of medical aid. In light of these developments, the global creative community has put together an initiative in order to raise funds for Medical Aid for Palestinians.
Sunil Gupta – Untitled #23, from the series, ‘Country – Portrait of an India Village’, 2007.
Launched on the 15th of November 2023 by the same group responsible for ‘Photographs for the Trussell Trust’, who previously fundraised £621,785 for people affected by the economic and social crisis as a consequence of the Covid-19 health emergency, and ending on the 6th of December, the Pictures for Palestine fundraiser is a photographic print sale, initiated by an international group of 150 artists looking to bring aid to Palestinian refugees in light of the urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
