Friends of Shaun Christmas Cards

Friends of Shaun Christmas Cards

12 artists, designers and photographers have contributed to a pack of Christmas cards, raising money in memory of Sheffield-born photographer Shaun Bloodworth.

Shaun took portraits of everyone from John Simpson to John Shuttleworth. His work features in the National Portrait Gallery’s collections. His interest in underground music saw him regularly collaborate with Mary Anne Hobbs on images that have been seen around the globe, of the likes of Benga, Skream and Hudson Mohawke. And his move into filmmaking had a massive impact on how Sheffield is perceived both within the city and around the world. Read more about Shaun in this BBC tribute.

Each of the 12 friends’ cards is based on a Christmas film. Packs are limited to 200, and priced at £10. Evolution kindly printed the cards for free, and 100% of the money raised will be donated to the Northern General’s transplant department.
