WHAT: FOTORELIEF and A Milk Gallery Project organizes “A Picture Saves A Thousand Lives” silent photo auction event to contribute to the Haitian earthquake relief effort through ROSE Charities. Over 100 of the world's most respected fashion and fine art photographers are each donating a photograph to be exhibited and auctioned off that evening, with the opening bids ranging from $300 to $10,000. Invited guests – art patrons, collectors, celebrities, and the fashion & fine art photography world elite – will have the opportunity to take home an important work of art, while making an invaluable contribution to the relief effort. All of the proceeds from the auction will go to ROSE Charities, to provide long-term care and rehabilitation for the survivors of the Haitian earthquake. In addition, a numbered, limited-edition book of all of the photographs from the auction, will be available at the event with all proceeds going to the cause.


FOTORELIEF, an all-volunteer organization and a veteran of fundraising auctions, has partnered with ROSE Charities to address some of the longer-term problems in Haiti. Noot Seear, international top model, actress and President of ROSE Charities US commented, “After the attention wanes and the media has decamped, there will still be years of rehabilitation and reconstruction needed for the Haitian people. The doctors, therapists and volunteers that generously donate their time and purpose, through ROSE Charities, have a history of that dedication.” John Gettings, Director of FOTORELIEF, added “We are extremely pleased to partner with ROSE Charities for this effort and want to thank Milk Gallery, all of the photographers, galleries and agents for their generous support.”
