Doublexposure 2005 Raises $110,000 for YIF


More than 340 photographers, arts enthusiasts, volunteers and students attended Doublexposure 2005, the ninth annual fundraiser for Youth in Focus. The event, held April 8 at Consolidated Works in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood, offered photography classes to at-risk teens and also included an auction that raised nearly $110,000 for the training of young photographers.

Photographer Hal Morey's famous image, "Grand Central Station, NYC circa 1930," garnered the highest bid at the auction, selling for $2,000. Morey's photo was supplied by the London-based Hulton Archive, owned by event sponsor Getty Images.

Photographic donors to this year's auction included luminaries from the local and national photographic scene, including Alice Wheeler, Larry Calkins, Spike Mafford and Barb Kinney. The students' work was framed by Museum Quality Framing and hung with the donated professional work in the Consolidated Works Galleries.
