BRATTLEBORO — A celebration of still photography to benefit The In-Sight Photography Project Scholarship Fund
For our 20th Annual Exhibition and Benefit Auction, we take our inspiration from Dorothea Lange who wrote, ” Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”
Arguably the most unique photography exhibition and auction in New England, In-Sight’s salute to the art of photography has become the stunning event it is thanks to the scores of photographers and lovers of photography who support the art form and understand the opportunity it provides young people as they learn how to look at — and see — the world around and ahead of them.
This annual show presented live at the Vermont Center for Photography and online, features works submitted by a wide range of international, national and local contributors, from renowned Guggenheim fellows, cutting-edge professionals and accomplished locals — some of whom may even be In-Sight alumni who have chosen to embrace photography in their lives.
Subject matter, mediums, photographic techniques and sizes vary widely, as does the price range. This is an auction designed to appeal to all audiences, from sophisticated collectors to those whose love of the art may be bigger than their pocketbooks!
Bidding takes place on this website and is therefore open to bidders all over the world. Bidding starts on Friday, October 5 and ends on Sunday, October 28 at 6 pm.

WHAT YOUR BID SUPPORTS
The Auction supports In-Sight Photography Project’s scholarship fund which makes it possible for In-Sight to provide its programs to all young people, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
This parent expressed it best:
“I wanted to thank you for the great class that my daughter took last fall. She learned so much and is excited to use those skills a lot in the future. I also want to thank In-Sight for making its programs so affordable for families. Other art schools in Brattleboro do not come even half as far as you do and that makes it hard for larger families especially. So thank you!”
