In a show of support and solidarity, an international group of photographers have joined together to raise funds for Annie Tritt’s top surgery recovery through an online print sale launching April 15 and one-day Pop Up Exhibition at Magnum Foundation on April 24.

Independent photographer Annie Tritt, author of acclaimed photo series “Transcending Self” and a 2019 CatchLight Finalist, is approaching an exciting and meaningful time in their life as they prepare for top surgery. Though this is an important personal decision in expressing their identity, Annie will be in recovery for weeks following the surgery. Proceeds from the sales will help Annie cover daily living expenses while they’re healing.

Organized by Sarah Stacke and Danielle Villasana, with support from Magnum Foundation, the online print sale and the Pop Up exhibition includes work from Annie Tritt, Angela Jimenez, Bradley Secker, Charmaine Poh, Daniella Zalcman, Danielle Villasana, Gowun Lee, Jake Naughton, Aarti Singh, Julia Gunther, Lauren Mulligan, Lisette Poole, Mengwen Cao, and Sarah Stacke—photographers committed to documenting LGBTQIA individuals and shedding light on their lives.

Becoming myself somewhat unintentionally publicly at my age is not easy. I’m always moved by words, so I turned to Audre Lorde who wrote ‘Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.’ So, here I am, becoming who I’m supposed to be—without a clear map, but with such great guides by my side. The support I’ve received from the photo community is something I could never have imagined and I’m grateful beyond words. Thank you.

In addition to $100 archival quality 8x10 prints, the sale includes a recovery registry with items under $75 to help make Annie’s recovery as comfortable as possible (cab rides to the doctor, a new book, dinner with friend). See the full press release here.

The pop up exhibition will take place on Wednesday, April 24, 6:00–8:00 PM at Magnum Foundation.
