A selection of works from the UK's largest collection of landscape photography is due to be auctioned at Christie's tomorrow.

On the evening of

May 15, the Positive View Foundation will present a benefit sale of photographs

from the ‘Landmark: Fields of Photography’ collection, which exhibited at

Somerset House in March of this year.

Among the 42

works offered are unique prints by notable photographers from the 19th

and 20th Century, including Daniel Beltrá, Nadav Kander and Edward

Burtynsky.

Proceeds from the

sale will benefit the Positive View Foundation and the Educational Programme it

is launching on the evening of the auction.

The Programme

aims to support photographic educational projects for underprivileged young

people and initiatives that tackle issues of youth crime.

Andrew Page, CEO

and Founder of Positive View Foundation, said: ‘”Landmark: the Fields of

Photography” has been a resounding success, with tens of thousands of people

enjoying the exhibition at Somerset House.’

He added: ‘Our

focus is now to ensure that we take the work donated by photographers and use

it to change the lives of some of our most disadvantaged under 25-year-olds.’

Christie’s said

it expects the auction to raise funds in the region of £200,000
