-My first goal of 600$ was a bit too unreasonable. Also, printing that huge would take entirely too much time. So I chose to drop down the amount so I can have an achievable goal.I am going to cancel the funding for the first project so I would ask If the people who supported me on the first go-round would just change their donation from that page to this one, I would appreciate it. All of the same rewards will apply. Thank you guys so much for helping me out!-
My name is Rachel N. Foley and I'm about to graduate! My first major show is coming up soon and I would like my vision to become a reality. I am at a really exciting time in my career and life at the moment. I finally feel ready to reveal my photography work to the world and I want it to be the best it can possibly be.
I have been photographing bodies in space for awhile now. One day I saw a topped tree, an unhealthy method of pruning, and it was my natural inclination to "complete" or "fix" the missing parts of the tree with my body. I have been studying the root chakra in relation to human and non-human forms and our symbiotic relationship with nature. I grew up in a rural area and now have moved closer to the city. I believe this is my way of subconsciously dealing with the destruction of nature I see all around me.
I would like to see my work come to fruition but there is only one hinderence: money. My concepts are strong and full, so I want the photos to speak for themselves by printing them large and presenting them in a simple format. The paper I would like to use is an ilford mulitgrade fiber double weighted matte roll (20x24") which is 250$. I would also like to mat my work but for time's sake and to keep the goal reasonable I will just try to raise enough for the paper and shipping.
If I can raise more, it will only make the show better! I really want to be able to share my vision with the world and share my personal experiences so that possibly other people can relate and find solace in that connection.
Any contribution is greatly appreciated and I sincerely thank you. You're contribution is 100% going back into the art.
HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS: Your credit card is only charged, if and when, we reach our goal. If I do not reach my fund raising goal by the project's deadline, I lose ALL the money that has been raised. Backer rewards are redeemable after I complete my show, which will be mid-may. After this time, I will contact the backers to obtain any additional information(ie. shipping address, etc.)
