About

In January of 2017 Kickstarter invited me to be part of their first Make/100 Campaign. The timing wasn't the best for me in early 2017, but 2018 is a new year and now at age 63 I'm more than ready to start promoting my photography dating back to the 1960's. The idea behind the "Make/100" projects is to offer a limited edition of "100" of something....in my case a fine art photograph.  

The 2 photographs below will both be limited to an edition of 100, regardless of the size or medium. After this Kickstarter project is over, the remaining photographs of the editions will be offered in my gallery and website for at least 100% more than what they are available for you here.

Jillian Ann - Broken Window , 2014
Jillian Ann - Broken Window , 2014

Jillian Ann - Broken Window, 2014 was made at Fort Ord, Ca. Broken windows have been a favorite by photographers such as Brett and Cole Weston, Wynn Bullock and many others. Taken with my Fuji 645 camera using Ilford HP5 Plus 120 black & white film. 

Jillian Ann - Against the Wall, 2014
Jillian Ann - Against the Wall, 2014

Jillian Ann - Against the Wall, 2014 was made in an unfinished loft of the building that my studio/gallery is located. The use of flash and strong window light gives a fine black shadow around the body that reminds me of some of Edward Weston's nudes that he did in the 1920/30's. Taken with my Fuji 645 camera using Ilford HP5 Plus 120 black & white film.  

The image below, Jillian Ann - Against the Wall, 2014, is printed using the 100+ year old platinum process and is available for only $200.00. Far less than an Edward Weston platinum :)

It's time to..."Stop talking about it and just DO IT!"...Tom Millea  

For many years I've been saying I need to start going through my contact sheets and negatives and start printing my photography. Brett Weston encouraged me back in the 80's, Ryuijie in the 90's and just a few years ago, Tom Millea laying in his hospital bed, days before he passed away...said, "Stop talking about it and just DO IT!"

Since Tom said those words a very positive "shot in the arm" has come my way. One of my photographs was included in the book "Unclad" a small selection of images from the Don Sanders collection of over 10,000 fine art nude photographs. 

Photographers in Don's book include Avedon, Clergue, Gibson, Hosoe, Kuhn, Mapplethorpe, Newton, Ritts, Sieff, Sturges, Tress, Welpott, Edward, Cole and Kim Weston, and many more of the most famous fine art photographers of the nude over the last 80+ years. To say I'm "honored" to be included might be the biggest understatement by me ever...maybe I should say privileged!

Thank you for viewing my Make 100 Kickstarter project and I would very much appreciate your support...Russ Levin

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal for you to receive your reward by the dates set within. This is my forth Kickstarter project and and the one thing I have learned is to be on time. For that reason I have limited this project to only two images and have started production of them and I'm very confident that you will receive your reward in a very timely manner. There are no other logistical risks associated with this project at this time.
