PROOF Turns Ten - Aaron Siskind

PROOF TURNS TEN on Monday 17 October 2016, with a celebration auction featuring some outstanding and award winning photographers who have generously donated their work in support of PROOF and social justice.

Aaron Siskind (December 4, 1903 – February 8, 1991) was an American photographer and educator. Beginning his photographic career in the 1930s as a social documentarian with the New York Photo League, he ultimately radicalized the medium by emphasizing the photograph as an abstract form of expression and an aesthetic end in itself. Siskind taught in New York City's public schools for 25 years before becoming recognized as a photographer and then a gifted pioneer of photographic education. His vision and methods have and will continue to inspire and instruct future generations of artists and teachers.

 

Everyone who purchases a ticket before October 12 has a chance to win a 24" x 20"special edition Toby Braun print.
