Home >> Elton John AIDS Foundation's first limited edition Photography Portfolio

The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) announced the publication of its first Photography Portfolio to benefit urgently needed grant-making initiatives supporting innovative HIV prevention programs, efforts to eliminate AIDS-related discrimination and stigma, and direct care services. "The Portfolio is a way for us to connect with the visual arts world, which has always been at the forefront in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and it is proof that artists continue to care," said Scott Campbell, Executive Director of the Foundation.

The result of a very happy marriage between two of Sir Elton's greatest passions, collecting photographic art and raising money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Portfolio includes some of the most outstanding international names: Nan Goldin, Katy Grannan, Damien Hirst, Sally Mann, Richard Misrach, Shirin Neshat, Thomas Struth, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller and Ruud van Empel. All these artists are also represented in Sir Elton's own collection. "I am both thrilled by the extraordinary array of art that has been contributed to this collection and profoundly grateful to the generous and talented artists represented within for supporting EJAF's vital work," said Sir Elton.
