In February 2010 a devastating earthquake followed by tsunami destroyed part of the territory of Chile, dragging villages, livelihoods and -most painful- lives. POR CHILE is an effort by the artists linked with CITYPULSE to help rebuild part of the loss. The images and texts that make up this work represent a message to Chile from each of the 38 photographers around the world who has collaborated with this initiative.
The contribution of the artists also includes a limited 5 print series of each of the photographs. An audio CD by 14 musicians and a collaborative video by 20 visual artists are also part of the project. All the profits will go to help the victims.
