Co-founded by stylist and creative consultant Nancy Rohde and Elizabeth Norris, the founder and director of creative agency Artistry Global, Dust Off was created this year with the purpose of using the medium of photography to raise awareness and fundraise for global humanitarian causes. And it has certainly launched in style.

Not only will you have a wonderful piece of work on your wall, but the revenue from the sale of each piece of work will be donated to War Child UK. The non-profit organisation works to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living through conflict in some of the hardest to reach and hardest hit places in the world, from Afghanistan to Ukraine.

It was in Berlin that I was confronted first-hand by the exodus of women and children fleeing Ukraine disembarking from trains and onto the platform,” explains Rohde. “There were so many children who would be profoundly affected for the rest of their lives. It really was the saddest thing I have ever witnessed, and I felt a desperate need to help.”

I could never have imagined Dust Off would be such a rewarding and exciting project to build with the wonderful Nancy Rohde and Katharina Uhe [from Artistry] – so many incredible photographers, printers, graphic designers, and artists have been incredibly generous and supportive in bringing this special fundraiser to life,” concludes Norris.

“The quality of photography we are lucky enough to be selling is exceptional, and I hope we raise a fortune for all the children suffering globally as a result of conflict; they are at the core of everything we hope to achieve. I cannot thank everyone enough.”

Dust Off runs until 30 November; all photographic prints are available to buy at dustoff.org.uk
