to be displayed next week at theprintspace in east london’s borough of shoreditch, the show is a transformation of it’s sister event, art on a postcard. from 12th-25th the selection of 550 photographers – a third of which came via an open call judged by renowned names liz collins, dougie wallace and robin maddock – will present a broad spectrum of styles, during which members of the public can purchase a lottery ticket for £50.

bidders are guaranteed a photograph from the show which will only be revealed once the show closes. as well as investing in the work of a talented student who may be the next nat finklestein, buyers have a very high chance of receiving a valuable collector’s piece such as a one-off simon norfolk or liz hingley. each photograph will be a postcard sized edition with a certificate of authenticity in any case.

to date the trust has raised over 350k in a mission to eliminate hepatitis c by 2030.
