I recently found out that my friend Dan was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Dan is the husband of Nori. And Nori is the first nude model that I ever shot and now a good, close friend. Dan is in a desperate fight to beat this disease and with no health care, this is more than an uphill battle for Dan and Nori. So, a few of us photographer types have decided to put together a benefit art sale to try to help them out.
Below are details about the artwork that will be for sale in Olaf’s studio at the beginning of this month. The collection will then move to the Connexions Gallery in Easton, PA where it will be on display and for sale for a few weeks. So, if you can help out, stop by and purchase some beautiful artwork for your collection! I will also be announcing some on-line print sales in upcoming posts. Everything I’m doing, from making prints, to the mounting and matting is being donated. All the money from your purchase price will go directly to help Dan.
