ART FOR OBAMA

The U.S. presidential has provided much excitment this year. With the Canadian election coming up, again, I can’t help feeling slightly guilty about how little I know about our election versus the States’. While I think most people agree on photography’s lack of ability to spark big change, except for rare situations, ART FOR OBAMA shows what role artists can play in things such as an election.

ART FOR OBAMA is an onlineĀ  auction for photographs with the proceedes going to Obama’s Campaign. I find this interesting as there are many big names donating work to the auction, my favourites being Alec Soth and Todd Hido. I am sure the auction will fetch quite a large amount of money and it sheds light on the prominence of photography in North America as well as the the kind of photographers practicing and the excitement surrounding the election.
