Twenty well known equestrian photographers have joined together to offer their support to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Haiti Earthquake Appeal.

The photographers are organising a special online auction of 20 original equestrian images commencing 28 January entitled :20/20 -- 20 PHOTOGRAPHERS – 20 IMAGES – 1 CAUSE

All involved in the project are giving their time and resources free of charge to ensure that every single penny raised at the auction will go directly to the DEC Appeal.

The auction provides a rare chance for members of the public to get their hands on some amazing original images taken by a plethora of award winning photographers. Each image will be signed, mounted and framed.

Contributing Photographers include:

Henry Dallal – author of Pageantry and Performance and Horse Soldiers. An example of Henry’s work sold at auction in 2009 for in excess of $11,000.
