Original photos up for auction -
From 6 September to 31 October Chivas Brothers, creators of one of the world's finest premium blended Scotch Whiskies, will place 200 of the world's most wanted items and experiences up for bid in the largest online auction ever created. Whether you place a bid or just watch the live action as it unfolds, they've designed their auction to offer you a wealth of fun and surprises. As each lot is sold, all proceeds will go direct to our charity partners. As lots become live between the dates of 6th September and 31st October 2001, they will be featured on eBay, the online auction host for Chivas 200.
A spokesperson for Chivas 200 commented "We are proud to have eBay, the
world's largest person-to-person online trading community, as our partners in
this venture. eBay has thirteen country-specific sites around the world and is a
company that is dedicated to user satisfaction and customer service of the very
highest standards. eBay's experience ensures that we have the safest possible
trading environment for every party involved in every transaction. As a partner
for Chivas 200, eBay has an impeccable pedigree."
The eBay site will guide you through every stage of the auction process, which involves three basic steps: Registration, Bidding and Monitoring Your Bid Progress.
This photography portfolio consists of a limited edition collection of signed prints donated by 11 of the most important photographers working today. They are; Richard Avedon, Adam Fuss, Ralph Gibson, Nan Goldin, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Annie Leibovitz, Jack Pierson, Richard Prince, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman and William Wegman. The portfolio is published by Serge Sorokko Gallery of New York and San Francisco.
The prints are produced by various printers chosen by the individual artists in a limited edition of 40. All prints are 20x24 inches, signed and numbered. They will be delivered to the successful bidder in custom-made, linen portfolio boxes, designed especially for BAM by John Cheim.
Own one of ten prints of 'Underbelly', created by world famous celebrity photographer Rankin. Your print will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Rankin. Rankin chose the 'Underbelly' print as it was originally shot for his new fashion magazine Rank, and is quite a recent favourite fashion image of his. It is also special due to the fact that it was the first shoot he undertook for the debut of his new magazine and feels that it will stand the test of time due to the humour within the image.
Rankin is noted for his first class pop culture and controversial fashion photography having captured the faces of Mel C, Helena Christenssen, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, David Bowie and Radiohead's Thom Yorke in unprecedented style. He consolidated his reputation as one of Britain's finest portrait photographers after establishing and carrying out work for Dazed magazine.
