Awareness in Manhattan
For Immediate Release:
Manhattan, NY 18 December, 2010
Awareness in Manhattan (AIM) is an exhibition series featuring 30 large format limited edition artworks by famed photographic artist Thomas Hodges. The series will debut in 2011 at a prime Manhattan venue, with a V.I.P reception highlighted by an auction of the first editions of these unique specially produced artworks. Celebrity guest are expected to attend the exhibition, with full event details to be announced later this year.
Hodges is known for his “Imaginistic” photographs of female beauty, which are sought after by collectors globally. Attendees will experience firsthand his award winning work, which has been described as, “sensuality with suspense”.
Thomas said: “The objective of the series is to bring the subject of breast cancer prevention to the focus of a sector of the community that is frequently overlooked, i.e. the younger, hip, chic and trendy, that may feel beyond the disease and immune. Also, focus will be on the traditional sector of the community, whereby the very nature of this series grabs their attention, bringing a general awareness to society as a whole.”
One of the aims of the project is to help raise awareness of cancer prevention in the community and target those unaware of the relatively simple choices they can make in reducing their cancer risk.
Inaugurate exhibitions will take place in New York City and London with 50 per cent of proceeds donated to World Cancer Research Fund, a UK charity which is a member of a global network of charities who fund scientific research and give people the information they need to reduce cancer risk. A commemorative book is anticipated to complement the exhibition, with any proceeds also going to the cancer charity.
The Awareness in Manhattan exhibition will contain photos shot on the streets of New York City featuring international top model and actress Chu Chiao Wang, who kindly donated her services to this project. She has lived and worked in Europe since 2005 when she moved to London to study for her Master’s degree. “As a professional model it is a great artistic opportunity to work with someone like Thomas whose work I really admire. I am also pleased that the money raised will go towards cancer prevention research, which is something that is close to my heart.”
