Starting in June 2010, I will ride my bicycle from Missouri to Washington. I plan to document the entire trip through photographs.
Hello! My name is Janelle Jones and I am a photographer based in Brooklyn, New York.
Starting in June 2010, I will ride my bicycle, with two other artists, from St. Louis, Missouri to Washington, and possibly down the coast of California (time permitting). The trip will take two, to two and a half months - going through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. I will document the entire trip - the towns and rural areas we ride through, the people we meet, the things we see - through photographs. I have never before embarked on such an epic trip, nor have I spent much time exploring the midwest or west coast of the United States. I want to use photography as both a means and an end to the exploration of new and unfamiliar places and ideas that I will encounter along the way.
With your help, I aim to raise $900 before the trip begins. All money contributed through Kickstarter will go towards the purchase of film, film processing costs, and one or two pieces of necessary camera equipment for my Hasselblad 500c/m camera. In return, you will have my sincere thanks and a handmade artifact from the trip.
When the trip is all said and done, I hope to exhibit the photographs in a gallery in New York or St. Louis, and possibly create a book that incorporates other documentation (drawings, found objects, etc.) from the trip.
