Have you ever looked into Kickstarter? This interesting website allows for anyone to create their own project and utilize the web to draw investors. I recently created a new Kickstarter project I would love all of my readers to take a look at:
The short version of this project is this is a photobook professional designed to display the highest quality landscape images from Europe - including Croatia, Italy, France, Austria and Switzerland.
Why Should You Back This Project?
The goal of this project is to create a book of these travels to document the landscapes and culture the way I see it. By supporting this project you are supporting the first steps in remembering this beautiful world. As I reached 30 years old, my memory began to fade rather quickly. While many people have the ability to recall the finest details of the most important and beautiful moments of their lives, the smells, the sounds, the feelings, and something as simple as the location… I do not.
This turning point in my life transformed photography from a focus of people, life and culture to a focus of documenting the details and experiences in my life I would otherwise forget. The focus of this photobook is to take only the highest quality, limited edition prints from my travels through Europe to present a vivid, inspiring gallery of images into a collection. My photography has been internationally published and displayed in galleries in the United States. My current theme "Undiscovered California" is currently on display in a gallery in Sacramento, CA.
This photobook is a rare opportunity to become invested in over twenty pieces of previously unpublished photographs that will become a part of future presentations. The funds raised will go directly into the design and printing of this photobook and it's distribution. Investing $150 will also give you a copy of the photobook for your own piece of Europe to display in your home.
