The past decade has been marked by the struggle and plight of refugees risking their lives to flee from war-torn countries and their homes. When photographs of the refugee crises in 2015 made global headlines overnight, London-based photographer, Mark Sherratt, pledged his effort to make a difference and help the cause.
The result? Prints For Refugees - a collaboration between the photography community and the humanitarian organisation Doctors of the World UK. Each print is generously donated by photographers and made available on Prints For Refugees at a much lower price. With photographers covering all printing and posting costs, 100 per cent of the profits go directly to Doctors of the World, an independent humanitarian organisation empowering excluded people to access healthcare.
Renowned photographers Rankin and Dougie Wallace sit amongst the 40 hero photographers who have contributed and helped make Prints For Refugees the success that it has become. “I'm pleased to say that the response from the photographic community has been fantastic, with lots of my favourite artists very happy to give away their amazing work” says creator Mark Sherratt, “I'm also very pleased to be able to work with such a great charity as Doctors of the World who were helping out before most of us (including me) even realised there was a problem.”
With Christmas right around the corner, we know where we'll be spending our money.
