The Studio_M founder Matt Porteous has built a reputation as one of the UK's leading photographers. His passion for purpose-driven storytelling has taken him around the world, connecting him to some of the world's greatest changemakers. Matt is also the personal photographer to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Over the past two years he and his Studio_M colleagues have visited India and Nepal to document GoodWeave’s work to end child labor in global supply chains.
In honor of World Day Against Child Labor 2020, Studio_M has donated six very special prints Matt captured during his travels with GoodWeave to this silent auction. The 20x30”signed and mounted prints each have a minimum bid of $400. The winning bidder will receive the photo via post after the auction ends on June 26, 2020.
All proceeds from the auction go directly toward GoodWeave's COVID-19 Child and Worker Protection Fund, which was established to deliver immediate humanitarian aid and services to vulnerable populations in India, Nepal and Afghanistan.
