The Prize

"Christa Brittany'' by Tyler Shields

  • Image size: 60'' x 40''
  • Framed 
  • Includes certificate of authenticity

One-of-a-kind nude photograph of Christa Brittany by Hollywood's elite photographer, Tyler Shields. Tyler Shields is best known for his unique, controversial, shock-evoking shots of Hollywood celebrities. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Tyler Shields is recognized as “Hollywood’s favorite photographer”. Shields' technical brilliance as a photographer has much more to do with the shift in focus from the fragility of the “celebrity photographer” to the output of the contemporary art medium. Most of the talented people who work with him include actors who are serious about their profession, but are not celebrities. People will go to him to make art rather than celebrity photography. 

Retail Value: $30,000

 

The Cause

The Help A Life Foundation was formed in 2007 with the goal of housing and educating adolescent orphaned girls and providing them with a secure and supportive environment. We currently house 52 girls in a building compound capable of accommodating 56 girls and managed with a local staff of nine. Four tutorial rooms are used daily with a staff of six tutors in a range of subjects from English to Biology. 44 girls have completed high school and are at different universities throughout Ethiopia with most studying to become doctors or engineers.

These girls are selected from the surrounding villages with the collaborative effort of the local community leaders where they are housed in a gated safe group home with all living necessities provided for.

In addition, life skills training is also provided to integrate them into society as productive citizens. We currently have three self-sustaining projects, where five of the girls are managing them full-time as their careers and will be paid an according salary that allows them to integrate back into society as a proven success of Project Blue.

Much of the success of this project is due to Help a Life working directly with the local government and businesses. All of the HALF staff on Project Blue in Debre Markos are Ethiopian, and decisions are made in tandem with the local government officials.
