Raising funds for cancer research, Iceland’s Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson and Minister of Finance Bjarni Benediktsson recently posed as Dr. Spock and Captain Kirk of Star Trek, as can be seen in the accompanying photograph taken by Ari Magg.
The annual campaign Pink October to raise awareness of cancer among women and funds for cancer treatment kicked off last Wednesday.
This year, the campaign will also include an auction, in which Iceland’s leading artists, designers, comedians and public figures offer up their creations or services. These included, in addition to the above mentioned photograph, a guitar signed by members of the rock band Of Monsters and Men and a bespoke dress by Icelandic fashion brand ELLA.
The auction of the photograph closes at midnight tonight. To place a bid and support cancer research, click here.
