Regarded members of the creative community from around the world have united at AMASS.life to sell their archival prints to support New York City healthcare workers through the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.
The prints are available at the website (Amass.Life) and are priced at $95. All (100%) of the profits go to supporting frontline healthcare workers.
“New York City means a lot to me. I spent most of my life there, and in a very real way, I felt like I owed it,” said AMASS cofounder and photographer Zach Gold. “We knew that sitting safe at home was a very privileged position, so cofounder Christian Weber and I reached out and connected with everyone we knew to start AMASS and help healthcare workers out in the way that we are able. Christian was an incredible force to partner with. We both just wanted to show up for those on the frontline of this pandemic.”
Photographers, filmmakers and artists, including Fabien Baron, Mick Rock, Danny Clinch, and Taylor Steele, donated their work to the campaign, which features more than 100 different archival prints. Several are musically related, such as Jesse Frohman’s iconic photo of Kurt Cobain, Gold’s gritty Iggy Pop portrait, Danny Clinch’s Bruce Springsteen and Rock’s capture of Ziggy Stardust fans at a David Bowie concert. Other images star Martin Luther King Jr., Nas, Sting, Helen Mirren, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, and Mac Miller.
