YiPArt Photo Auction 2019
The YiPArt Photo Auction is this year ready for its 9th edition.  It is a unique opportunity for art lovers to purchase an artwork from renowned top photographers as well as from upcoming talents. At the same time, the auction offers the opportunity to contribute to the positive reintegration of ex-detained youngsters worldwide.

Stacii Samidin
According to  tradition one photographer will have a special role in the program of YiPArt. This year it’s the young Dutch photographer Stacii Samidin, well known for his renowned series Societies and Document Netherlands 2018 for the Rijksmuseum. Prior to the auction, Samidin provided a photo workshop for YiP in a juvenile justice  center in the Netherlands. The workshop resulted in a photo serie  that will be exhibited during the viewing days of the auction. Stacii: “When I’m there, I feel how important it is to bring the outside world inside. By being creative you can think: ‘“How could my life look like in the future?”’
