The Human Rights Watch Annual Auction 2015
In November 2015 Nicola Green donated Fear, London Proof 1/1 to The Human Rights Watch Annual Auction. The Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organisations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, they give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes.
Fear is a unique work from Nicola Green’s In Seven Days… series:
“The image was inspired by a press conference I attended in January 2009 shortly before Obama’s presidency began. It is seen from Obama’s viewpoint – looking out into a sea of cameras, a sea of people, each of them wanting something. This is not just about the media pack; it is about all of us and what we expect from and of each other. The camera looks at us all and we have to ask ourselves what story we want to tell over the course of the 21st century” Nicola Green .
