Brit West has tapped into her creativity to support Native Americans in need.
While the world is attempting to adjust to the ever-evolving coronavirus situation, people of the Navajo Nation have been hit with financial struggle, leaving elders without provisions. Western designer and photographer Brit West has set out to use her artistic eye for a cause with the creation of her Photography for a Purpose project.
West traveled to the picturesque Monument Valley to shoot Navajo people and culture in their broad-spectrum beauty, and is now selling the prints with proceeds going directly to her subjects, who are in need of food, medication and additional supplies.
As her website describes:
Proceeds from these images will go directly to the models and elders we shoot. Our current project is raising money to help with the current Corona Virus shutdowns. Your purchases will buy hay, food, medication and supplies for the Nation. I will post on all social platforms so you can see that your money matters! We will be auctioning some numbered prints for larger scale donations.
Photography prints are available here.
If you're not in the market for an art print, West has also created a campaign to donate money in any amount directly towards the fund. Click here to donate.
