Thanks!! We have reached our goal, but you can still give. More contributions = More Portraits.
Imagine never having a photo of yourself. Not one of yourself, your family, your birthday parties, your childhood days, your newborn, or your retirement trip. That is the reality of hundreds of millions in our world.
I spent a year and a half out in India, and during my time there I watched individuals till their land by hand, sweat to keep their crops growing, and finally harvest to feed their children. And I must admit, I fell in love. I fell in love with farming, their work ethic, and most of all, the farmers.
We all want to make our mark, we all want to live forever, and I believe photos have a way of doing just that. I am asking for your support, in order to give individuals who do not have thousands of photos on a social networking site, who don't have a nice camera on a cell phones, and who would never be able to have a framed photo of themselves or their family, to have just one.
I will fly out to India on my own expense and shoot photos of farmers. Then I will go back to the cities and develop the photos to a 11 x 14 print and frame them. I will give them a huge hug and hand the wrapped framed photo and say, "This photo is from ___(your name)___, who believes everyone in the world should have a family photo."
Thanks so much, it means a lot. Please help spread the word.
Note: The photos in the video were taken in Madhya Pradesh India while working for Digital Green and working with Samaj Pragati Sahayog. These pictures or those taken in India of farmers for Farmer Portraits are not to be used for any other purposes. Pictures that can be used will only be made available with the farmer/individual's consent.
