Art For Assistants - Mary Ellen Matthews

As we are on hold during this pandemic there is time to help others out.  None of what I and most photographers do, can be done with out photo assistants.  These hard working individuals help us shape light and capture all the images we love to put out in the world.   This campaign is designed to support this assistant community while we are not working.  Please lend your support here and get yourself print of John Mulaney  signed by myself AND by John Mulaney!  Shot exclusively for Saturday Night Live, this is one of the on air Bumpers that appear on the show and are  usually not available   Details below and thank you in advance for your support and stay safe. xx

While the world works to heal itself and take on this tragedy headfirst, we want to make sure we are supporting those who always support us. To do so, we are asking you to join us in “Art for Assistants”, a campaign to turn paper and ink into financial support for photography assistants. 

The first 100 people to donate $100 or more will receive a limited edition, 11”x14" print of Mary Ellen Matthews'  image of John Mulaney from Saturday Night Live on Epson metallic luster, archival paper.  Prints are $100 each, but of course, donations of any size are welcomed. For donations of $100 or more, please send an email to matthewsmaryellen@yahoo.com with your best mailing address and phone number.

Once we receive confirmation of donation, your exclusive print along a Certificate of Authenticity will be sent your way!  One hundred percent of proceeds from the sale of these photography prints (with an exception of the 3% that goes to GoFundMe) will go to cover the living expenses of our team's dedicated sidekicks, who no longer have the opportunity to work due to Covid-19.  “Art for Assistants” will mobilize the world’s greatest image-makers to use edition prints, to raise money for all the assistants heavily impacted by the lack of work during this time.  When our fund raising closes we will pass the baton to two other photographers to keep the donations and the crews going.
