This has been all over the photo-blogosphere the last few days, but in case you haven't heard about it yet make sure to take a look. It's a pretty extraordinary event, especially considering that I understand it was organized in an incredibly short period of time. It should surprise no one that the vast majority of people in the contemporary photography world have this particular political leaning:
Art for Obama is an online auction of photographs to benefit the Obama campaign. The whole thing was put together by photographers Ahndraya Parlato, Elizabeth Moy, Gregory Halpern, Whitney Hubbs and Dru Donovan. It's slated to run for 1 week and bidding begins October 1st, so get ready — the list of artists who've donated work is pretty spectacular:
Shana & Robert ParkeHarrison
