Images without Borders

Submitted by on September 30, 2010 – 3:31 pm

Artistic collaboration can make a difference in the world, and Images without Borders is a perfect example.

Over 100 photographers from all over the world have come together with Images without Borders to help the people of Haiti. These photographers donated their images to the organization, and Images without Borders sells prints of the images through their website. After printing costs, all proceeds from print sales go to Doctors without Borders which has been working in Haiti since the earthquake this year.

Images without Borders was founded by photographers Laura Bergerol and Stacy Ericson who wanted to help the people of Haiti but did not have the money to do much. They started a website and reached out to photographers. Their numbers grew from a handful of photographers to over 100 photographers worldwide.

Images without Borders features work by award-winning photographers who have had their work featured in the New York Times, National Geographic, Destination 360, and Asian Geographic to name a few. Collectors will also appreciate the fact that when someone purchases a photo print through Images without Borders, they retire the print so that every picture is unique.
