Foreword Projects PhotoVoice
It gives me the greatest pleasure and honour to lend my support to this auction and to the work of PhotoVoice. The charity’s projects here in the United Kingdom and around the world have proven invaluable for years now to communities, groups and individuals. The ways in which their vision has been realised and their voices heard are consistently imaginative and engaging. To read through the range of projects in this catalogue and on their website is to be inspired both by how PhotoVoice has empowered people whose lives are full of challenges which, before PhotoVoice became involved, were all too invisible to the rest of us, and by how powerful and meaningful self-expression through photography can be. Also inspiring, of course, are the magnificent donations of photographs to this auction. There is work here from emerging new talents as well as well-known names, and from every genre of photography – you will undoubtedly find something here to excite and stimulate you. This is your chance to contribute to a charity whose projects really need your support. PhotoVoice’s work is important and its reach around the world can only be extended with your help – I hope you enjoy the evening and urge you to be generous with your bids, knowing that your contribution will truly count. Sebastien Montabonel European Senior Specialist, Photographs, Phillips de Pury & Company, London
PhotoVoice is an award-winning charity and a leading organisation in the field of participatory photography. Our projects enable those who are traditionally the subjects of photographs to become their creators.Through photography, participants find the confidence to speak out about their challenges, concerns, hopes and fears. PhotoVoice’s vision is for a world in which no one is denied the opportunity to speak out and be heard. PhotoVoice’s mission is to build skills within marginalised communities using innovative participatory photography and digital storytelling methods, so that they have the opportunity to represent themselves and create tools for advocacy and communications to achieve positive social change.
Why photography? Photography is a highly flexible tool that crosses cultural and linguistic barriers and can be adapted to all abilities. Its power lies in its dual role as an art form and as a means to record facts. It provides an accessible way to define realities, communicate perspectives and raise awareness of important social and global issues. The relative low cost of photography and ease of dissemination encourage sharing and increase the potential to generate dialogue and discussion.
PhotoVoice’s partners are involved in every project – be they an international NGO or a local community organisation. We work in the UK and internationally, with a wide range of people who are marginalised, at risk and discriminated against, because of factors including poverty, ethnicity, age, health, disability and HIV status. We provide a platform for these groups to show their work and advocate for change.

PhotoVoice Projects Projects PhotoVoice
Here is a selection of some our most recent projects from the last year. We would like to give a special thanks to all of our project partners, funders, facilitators and volunteers. Lookout UK PhotoVoice has expanded Lookout London to become Lookout UK. The programme encourages and supports young people across the UK to speak out about issues that affect them and other young people in their community. Issues such as gangs, knife crime, youth opportunities and peer pressure are often discussed in political circles and the media, over the heads of those most affected, and those who hold the key to improving the situation – young people themselves. Through photographs, music and text the Lookout project amplifies the voices of young people in the public, political and media arenas. As our campaign grows, more young people will see that there is a way to speak out and be heard, and to play a constructive role in tackling issues and negative perceptions.
Having Our Say Too, UK PhotoVoice has partnered with the National Working Group for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People to run photography and digital storytelling workshops with young people who have experienced or are at risk of sexual exploitation. These workshops enable participants to represent their thoughts, responses and experiences through photography, text and music, creating their own digital stories. A selection of project images have been exhibited as part of the Brighton Photo Fringe photography festival 2012. Able Voices Albania In July 2012, PhotoVoice, in partnership with World Vision Albania, ran a two-week photography course with two groups of disabled young people from disadvantaged communities in Albania, enabling and supporting them to use photography as a way of exploring their experiences and aspirations and speaking out about the barriers they face to inclusion. After the workshops the young people were more confident in challenging other people’s expectations of their capabilities and in voicing their concerns and needs for greater inclusion.
Coming up… Shutter Release PhotoVoice has established a partnership with HM Prison Leeds to work with prisoners using participatory photography as a tool of communication and self-exploration, in order to engage them in positive planning and discussion around their release and successful rehabilitation into society.

Pricing Guidelines The pricing guide is intended to give a realistic point from which to start bidding, and does not necessarily represent the full potential value of the photographs. Many of the photographs are rarely available for sale and so, in some cases, it is difficult to accurately predict their eventual prices.

Each lot has been marked to indicate its approximate value as shown in the key.

Carinthia West | The Hanging Out Collection | Pink Floyd Contact Sheet, 1976 | In 1977, the Pink Floyd hired the innovative Hipgnosis team, Aubrey Powell and Storm Thorgenson, to shoot the Animals album cover at Battersea Power Station in London. They organised a giant blow-up pig which was attached to ropes and supposed to float above the Power Station for three consecutive days, but unfortunately on the second day, the pig slipped its moorings. Everyone watched in horrified fascination and a certain amount of worry. The Floyd had hired an ex-police marksman to shoot it down in such circumstances, but he hadn’t turned up that day. Jumbo jet pilots, flying into London that morning, apparently told their passengers, “on the right of the plane you will see the Houses of Parliament and on the left....a flying pig!”. No one could believe their eyes. Ultimately, chased by police and press, the pig deflated ignominiously in a field in Kent much to the farmers surprise. These thirty-six frames attempt to tell its story. | Silver gelatin print, 24” x 24” | Limited edition 40/50, signed, printed 2012
