Through your contribution you are helping the Executor to continue to take care of the work and legacy of the artist.
As we don't receive any help from institutions, the sales we make from our online store, along with the payment for the licence for the use of images helps us cover the costs of the maintenance of our Project. The funds go to the protection of copyrights of JSH, like drawing up of contracts, legal follow-up, paying taxes, to maintain the website and keep social networks active, restore the images digitally, take care of the digital archive heritage, etc.
Many clients we have worked with that launch nonprofit projects have paid for the rights to use the image license. Even if the books, prints [videos or conferences] from your project would be free, the printers or providers that you use incur costs and usually charge for it. The use of image is considered as part of those services.
With the payment you are contributing to the protection and dissemination of the legacy of a great Mexican artist that deserves recognition worldwide.
