Friendsofanton.org: Supporting Anton Hammerl’s Kids

In April London-based photographer Anton Hammerl was shot by Qaddafi loyalists in Libya near Brega.

For 44 days the regime told his family he was alive and in detention along with 3 other kidnapped journalists. The truth is he was left to die in the desert.

Anton had 3 children, including a newborn baby. Now they need our help.

With the very generous support of PhotoShelter and Reporters Without Borders, I put together a website using on the same model as Joao Silva’s: selling prints and collecting donations. But this time the prints are from work by other photographers.

Some of the biggest names in contemporary photography have contributed: David Burnett, Gary Knight, Kenneth Jarecke, Todd Heisler, Tomas van Houtryve, Greg Marinovich. And we have more coming.

Please buy a print – they look incredible, are affordable and make really great Xmas gifts – or make a donation:
