Photography Collective See In Black to Launch a Two-Week Charity Print Sale

Featuring images captured by Black photographers who uplift and invest in Black visibility.

In the wake of the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others, creatives Joshua Kissi and Micaiah Carter have established a photography collective of Black photographers who uplift and invest in Black visibility. Dubbed See In Black, the platform has teamed up with printing company Artifact Uprising on a limited, two-week charity print sale set to launch on Juneteenth (June 19).

According to a press release, a selection of more than 70 images will be donated by See In Black, while “Artifact Uprising also will be donating the first 1,500-quantity Large Format Prints (11×14 size) ordered to benefit the initiative.” Kissi and Carter said in a statement: “We are artists and archivists. We do not merely make images of Black figures, we document history that is often unrecorded with intentionality, respect, nuance, and care. We serve as a platform for Black people to stand proudly in their permanence.”

One hundred percent of the profits from the sale will be allocated to five organizations – Know Your Rights Camp, Youth Empowerment Project, National Black Justice Coalition, Black Futures Lab and The Bail Project – dedicated to helping the Black community. Take a look at some of the offerings in the gallery above.

Prints retail for $100 USD each and will be available via See In Black’s website starting from June 19 until July 3. In case you missed it, Takashi Murakami plans on raising funds for the Black Lives Matter movement with his limited-edition print collection.
