Update #9

You Made it Happen!

Comment

I would like to thank everyone, including those friends of mine who put up with my incessant emails and still contributed to Shadows of the Gullah.

At about 5:45 on the final day of the campaign, with less than 7 hours to go, a very generous donor made a pledge that put us over the the top! I can't thank all of you enough for your belief in this story and my ability to tell it through photography. I'm truly humbled.

Shadows of the Gullah continues to get recognition. The newspapers in Beaufort and Hilton Head, S.C. published a story on the project. Recently the Charleston City Paper and David Alan Harvey's BURN Magazine featured the story.

Now the work begins! I will be making plans through the end of the year for trips back to the Sea Islands. As we get close to the first trip all donors will start to receive updates on the project complete with new images. 

Again, thanks to everyone who supported this project and helped spread the word.
