I hope to self-publish a photo book from this project. I also need to cover the print costs of upcoming photo exhibits.

A chronic kidney disease epidemic is crushing Central America. In Nicaragua, areas near sugarcane fields are particularly hard hit.  Many believe that pesticides may be contributing to this widespread illness. For more information, check out: https://vimeo.com/57975116

I am trying to raise money for photo printing/mounting costs for multiple photo exhibits to spread the word about this problem. In addition, a self-published book will reach a greater audience about this very topic. I am seeking funds to have the book printed as well. Smaller increments add up!  Thanks so much for your help.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Possible risk/challenge of project include:
poor print quality of the photographs and/or book
problems with print delivery
difficulties landing gallery venues in NY and/or Boston
gallery backing out of photo exhibit
weather compromising photo exhibit opening

Should any of these issues arise, I will do everything I can to clear those hurdles and get these photos/this story out.
