Art on a Postcard – Street Photography Up For Auction

This week the Art on a Postcard organisation holds an exhibition of Street Photography and Urban Contemporary Art at the Old Spittalfields Market in London. Around 600 postcard sized photographs and artworks are up for auction, anonymously, raising money for the Hepatitis C Trust.

 

Photographer Dougie Wallace and urban artist Ben Eine have curated the show and included photographers like Craig Reilly and Melanie Einzig. As always with Art on a Postcard, the identity of the artists is only revealed after the sale. With this auction the organisation raises money for The Hepatitis C Trust, a national UK charity for Hepatitis C:

“Historically, hepatitis C has been neglected, partly because there has been no concerted patient voice. People with hepatitis C have typically kept quiet because it is infectious and because it has been wrongly stigmatised as ‘a drug users’ disease’.”

You can see all the images and bidding at Paddle 8, and more info can be found at Art on a Postcard. Bidding starts at £50. The exhibition at the Old Spittalfields Market will last until July 8, but the auction is extended until July 12.
