Thoughts from the darkroom:
How can we make posts and likes on social networks more effective?
As an analog experiment, you can buy any* black-and-white photo featured on my Instagram page (@bureau44), which I will print by hand. This can be either a classic print, an indigo twist, or a lithograph print on vintage paper from the 60s-80s (see the pictures here).
The format is 18 x 24 cm.
You can suggest you own price.
I will donate 50% of this amount to OVD Info to help people detained at protest rallies in Russia.
The prints will be delivered by any method you prefer.
This is a limited offer, as they say.**
* You must check with me whether a particular negative is available.
** Limited, that is, by my supply of paper and chemicals.

I am signed up make recurring donations to OVD Info and send them as much extra money as possible, but now I want to do something more.
So, if you want to buy my ceramics, write to me. I will give you cups and plates, and you will send the money for them to OVD Info or Apologia for Protest.
Alexandra Vorobyova has made a helpful list of the donation pages of the Russian organizations who provide legal aid and other assistance to people detained while protesting and/or report on these issues. I can personally endorse all of these organizations, whose human rights work and journalism have been featured on this website many, many times in the past.
