Mark Power - a print to help in Vanuatu

Mark Power - The Nakamal. Ionannen, Tanna, Vanuatu. 06/1989

To help the emergency appeal for funds to deal with the recent devastation in Vanuatu photographer Mark Power is generously offering a series of six different prints. These are photographs Mark made in Vanuatu in 1989 / 89.

Mark says this: Six days ago Cyclone Pam ripped through the Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu. Contact has yet to be made with some of the more remote islands so the full extent of the damage remains unknown, but there have been deaths, and many survivors have been found drinking seawater. President Baldwin Lonsdale has said his country would have to 'rebuild everything'. In 1988 and 1989 I spent six months in Vanuatu, having many adventures and taking a few photographs along the way. It remains one of the happiest and most memorable periods of my life. With your help I'm trying to raise £10,000 for the emergency appeal by offering for sale six different prints, each in an edition of 30, made in Vanuatu all those years ago. Beautifully printed on 14” x 11” Ilford Gallerie fibre based paper by LabLab in Krakow, Poland, the prints are just £65 each, plus post and packing. This exclusive offer will be on a strictly first come, first served basis and 100% of the profit will be send directly to the appeal. Each print will be signed, numbered, stamped and captioned on the back. The offer remains open for 14 days, or until all the prints sell, whichever is sooner. They will be made and shipped at the end of the sale. Please help! 

You can find full details HERE. But be quick these prints will sell out fast.
100% of the profits will be sent to the Care International Vanuatu Emergency Appeal.

While you are at it take a moment to have a look at some of Mark Power's work on his website HERE. If you don't know his work, you should. Mark is an an amazing photographer.
