A little slice of Jones for your wall…

If you happen to be in San Francisco on November 10th, you can have the chance of taking home a 2-dimensional slice of Jeremy Jones to hang on your wall and marvel at. Drop into the SF Patagonia store (at 770 North Point St) for an evening of Further-esque happenings and bid on a framed print of one of my shots of Jeremy slaying what we tagged the “Nat Geo” chute during our recent Further film Svalbard expedition. In fact the shot hasn’t been published anywhere yet, so the winner will have the very first print of this shot. Period. The print, measuring 80x65cm and exquisitely printed by Travis Rice Asymbol gallery, will be signed by Jeremy, who will also be there to nag until he either parts with anecdotes about our crew’s time on the remote islands or goes home crying. The whole evening is a fund raiser for Protect Our Winters charity, a US organisation that seeks to educate on climate change and assist ecologically sound developments.

This is what you can bid for in San Fran. Just don't get in your private jet to go and do so. 80x65cm print, archival quality, Signed by Jeremy Jones. © Dan Milner.

This event follows recent similar ones at the Patagonia stores in New York and Denver, both again fund raisers for POW charity, where prints of my shots of the veritable Travis Rice, shot during our Deeper Alaska session were auctioned for $600 for POW.

Now, nobody is going to pretend that all our winter activities –let alone all the miles we photographers clock up shooting wintery adventures for magazines and film projects- are a particularly ‘green’ way of enjoying ourselves, but every now and then an opportunity comes up to move the slider towards positive again, if only by a little.
