Dawn’s photographic prints from her sabbatical to Borneo on The Great Orangutan Project earlier this year are now available to buy online.

The prints were exhibited and sold at an event at QUAD in May, alongside a talk to raise awarness by Leo who works on the project in Borneo. The exhibition alone raised £910 for the project.

The new blog includes images and print sizes along with mounted canvasses which are all available to buy and ALL money raised will go straight back into the project.

The prints are now available to buy on the Orangutan Photographic Prints blog along with more information about the project itself and Dawn’s experience.
