Photo20 Auction Raises Significant Funds

After many years of successful in-person photo auctions, FAM pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic to an online auction event for Photo20 and collected nearly $45,000 in net income.

Held November 10-24, 2020, the auction was conducted by online auction company Artsy.  It featured dozens of works by esteemed photographers including Diane Arbus, Wolfgang Tillmans, Herb Ritts, John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, Antonio Lopez, Annie Leibovitz, Greg Gorman, Firooz Zahedi, Norman Seeff,and Nick Ut.  A total of thirty photographs were sold.

Big thanks to our Photo20 committee members Paris Chong, John Gile, Willie Maldonado, Matthew Lowe, Pat Lanza, Craig Dougherty, Kipton Cronkite and Michael Maloney.
