The 2013 International Center for Photography Infinity Award for Photojournalism.
On May 15, Christie’s in NYC auctioned photojournalism prints raising US$135,089.00 for the family of Anton Hammerl, a South African photographer who was killed in Libya on April 5th of last year.
As a freelance photographer, Hammerl didn’t have the financial support of a magazine or agency or a life insurance policy. He leaves behind a wife and three young children.
72 photographers and agencies donated prints for the cause including Bruce Davidson, Joao Silva, Alec Soth, Susan Meiselas, Sebastiao Salgado, and David Alan Harvey. The ICP added Robert Capa’s iconic D-Day landing image. The event was hosted by Christiane Amanpour. AP offered a signed print of my Pink Boxer Shorts picture from Afghanistan’s firebase Restrepo.
Please visit the Friends of Anton site if you want to offer further support to Anton’s family.
