About this project

This project is an expedition to photograph the landscapes from America's Midwest to her Gulf Coast. In a self-imposed five-day timeframe, with cameras in hand, I plan to visit cities along Interstate 55 that include Springfield, IL; St. Lois, MO; Memphis, TN; Jackson, MS; Hammond, and New Orleans, LA. In the pictures you'll see below, I'll be working primarily in digital color, but will be bringing along a variety of instant film to add a different look and feel to some of the photographs.

Your support will go towards all the essentials that will make this trip and the artistic process possible (most importantly instant film). My fund-raising goal is not only designed to cover the expenses of the road trip, but also the post-production work, and costs for book-format publishing to really give this project a life beyond the road. 

Check out the awesome rewards you'll receive for your support. Some of which include original, one-of-a-kind photographs, as well as a copy of the finished book of pictures taken during this project. As there are limits to some of these rewards, please pledge your support early so as to not miss out.

...and THANK YOU for taking the time to check-out my project and read this far into the description. Also, I hope you got a laugh, got a cry, and got some motivation out of my video. PS -- Roxy, my dog, would appreciate plenty of Backers at the $1000 level (wasn't she adorable?).

Respectfully, 

Steven Hammond
