About this project
This is the inside story of an invisible place, an inner-city shelter for transient, mentally-ill women. I was hired as a recreation worker to teach photography to this hidden population. Every day for a year, I took three subway transfers between my apartment in Manhattan and a place that some would consider the belly of the beast of hopelessness.
Since I worked at the shelter, I have been writing a book, with photographs by the women and myself, audio collected at the shelter, and a video that chronicles my year called Crazy and Proud. My goal is to produce a new eBook, my second, which will build on the popularity of my first book, Twitch and Shout, (Penguin 1998), and the earlier Emmy-nominated documentary of the same name.
Funds will be used to hire a computer expert to launch the full eBook with the now completed material. See www.crazyandproud.com
