At Your Own Risk

Damn... Mel, you had to go and post this. Then of course, it made me think of the last time I got sucked into a youtube background replay day. How come there aren't more crude rap songs about contemporary art?

Well, now that I've posted something I should be ashamed to spread around, let me bring attention around to two things I'm downright excited about:

- I mean, come on, just look at all the great people involved and the exceptionally affordable price tag. I'm really just downright honored to be included in this one.

50 States Project

- this one too. 50 photographers and their different takes on one challenge/assignment. What I especially love about this one is that problem-solving aspect. I have to admit, when I was first approached, I was reluctant to take on any new commitments, but when I saw how many people were involved who I've been admiring for awhile now, I couldn't say no. This is a party I was excited to be invited to. Thanks Stuart.

I'm just learning about this project now, and I hope it proves to be a good experience for the photographers. I used to live in PDX (then DC, not a state!), so I clicked on you first. Beautiful. Thanks!

I've loved following you on the 50 States Project! The Habitat entries were astounding, all around.

I work with an organization called First Person Arts, and we're looking for documentary photographers to help spread the word about our nationwide competition First Person America: In These Hard Times. We're a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to memoir and documentary art in all forms, and this year our goal is to attract essays, photos and films from all 50 states documenting how individuals and communities are coping with economic challenges. You can find out more about the competition, prizes and judges at http://firstpersonamerica.org
