“Stilled Life” a community Covid-19 photographic project from Turbine Art Fair (NPO)

Early in June “Stilled Life” a community photographic platform was launched to give South Africans a place to share their Covid – 19 stories. This was a place where anyone could send in their photos – not just professionals, but people with both a view and a captured moment of what they were seeing and feeling.

What is also important about this project is our desire, as Turbine Art Fair NPO, to reach out to the artists whose livelihoods have been severely impacted by the pandemic – and make a real difference. The top 100 images submitted will be auctioned by Strauss & Co in August with all proceeds to the BASA Artists Relief Fund.

Now in mid July, not only has Covid-19 become a brutal and unforgiving reality with numbers dramatically scaling but at Turbine we have been overwhelmed by the powerful images we have received from the community for Stilled Life.

Given this we have decided to extend the closing date to 31st July 2020.

So the call goes out not to miss this opportunity to ‘speak your truth’ and ‘share your photographic voice’ at this epic time. This is history in the making.

You also have a chance to make a real difference via the auction proceeds.

Turbine Art Fair (TAF) is a registered Non Profit Organisation, 152-943 NPO. Stilled Life is presented by Turbine Art Fair (NPO) in partnership with the Forum Company, and BASA (Business and Arts South Africa). The auction is sponsored by Strauss & Co.
