Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I cannot tell you what it means to me every time I receive an email telling me that I have made a difference. I am so honored that you all have taken on so strongly to this project. Here I am, nineteen years old, in a little dorm room in New York City, and I feel so incredibly fulfilled.
I am hoping to expand this project. I want to be able to photograph in others places in America and in Europe. Maybe even further than that. I want to be able to provide more support for you, by adding onto my team. I want to simply do more in general - as much as I possibly can.
I have created a fundraiser on a website called IndieGoGo, where you can donate money in exchange for prizes. I am very lucky to be surrounded by people like Cara Salimando, Allie Moss, and Shervin Lainez, who were willing to provide prizes. There are cool things like merch packages, signed CDs, and photo shoots with a couple of photographers (including myself). And if none of that interests you, I organized a few of my stock photos (mostly of landscapes) so you can have a 5x7 or an 8x10.
It’s not really about money, though. Money is just a part of the equation - if I could travel for free, I would :)
