      Hello Victoria. I have been sending updates out directly to donors. I have your email address (not sure you want me to post it here to verify) can you please send it to me at pete@petemarovichimages.com for I can verify it is correct?

      I am not posting updated for donors on Kickstarter. I am using the email system Campaign Monitor.

      You should have received updates by email in February, April, August, October and a Year in Review update in December. If you are not seeing them, please check your email again and your spam folder. I am using Campaign Monitor to send the updates and their system indicates that you have received and opened the email. Please advise if this is not correct. You may want to provide a different email.

      You may also find these updates on my website at http://www.petemarovichimages.com/category/shadows-of-the-gullah-geechee/

      They are posted there soon after they are emailed.

      I currently have no news to report since the December update as I am in the planning stages for the final two trips to the Sea Islands. The first will be in March and the final one in June.

      I am editing images, the book in being designed and the writer is working on the text. The plan is to have everything ready so that in June I can drop in a few remaining photos and send it to be printed. At that time donors will be able to pick their print and rewards will be sent out.

      Everyone can expect an update near the end of February.

      If you or anyone else has any questions about the updates or the project, feel free to post them and I will be happy to answer. You can post them here or on my website by commenting on the updates.

      Pete, an update on your community funded work is due. We would love to know how goes the work and I, and I would think others, would like to assist you in your quest...as it is partly ours, vicariously by our patronage. Love to get an update.

      Preservation of the Gullah/Geechee culture is incredibly important. That culture -- and the skills of this people -- shaped our nation in so many ways that are not acknowledged. What has happened to them -- and is happening now -- at the hands of white developers is shameful, and not acknowledged. Please give a little to this project.
