WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED AFTER THE AUCTION IS FINISHED ON 20TH JUNE
On the 20th May the Bengal and Odisha region of India was subjected to a catastrophic event when it was buffeted by the winds of Super Cyclone Amphan. The cyclone caused huge losses to property and many precious lives were lost. The environment and ecology of affected regions including the delta region has also been severely damaged. The aftermath of the cyclone is especially precarious as livelihoods have been disrupted and lives of millions of children and vulnerable people are at stake.
In the view of this Abundant Art Gallery and DNV Industries has come together with Bengal Heritage Foundation and Stay Alive Concerts for a fund raising campaign to support families in Bengal affected by the cyclone Amphan
We are putting up eight (8) iconic black & white photos(unframed) of Kolkata taken between 1969 and 1991 by internationally acclaimed West Bengal based photographer Sunil K Dutt for online auction. Most of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to charities working on cyclone relief. As we are aware that the ongoing Covid crisis has severely affected livelihoods of artists, a small part of the proceeds will be forwarded to Sunil K Dutt who is now a senior citizen.
Each one of these photographs create durable memories about a specific place or way of life of our beloved city-Kolkata. A city which is the pride and joy of its inhabitants, now badly battered by the cyclone. What better way could there be to help in the rebuilding efforts of this amazing city and its surrounding regions than acquitting some of its enduring memories through this photography auction. We would be immensely grateful to you all for support this cause. Please do participate and spread the word.
We express our heartfelt gratitude to Sunil Da for joining us in this cause.
