Hi Everyone!

Things are coming along with the book!

Today I had the first photo shoot and interview for the book, with Nica Lalli, author of Nothing: Something to Believe In. It was a wonderful experience, and I'm looking forward to all the future shoots.

I've also been organizing all the travel arrangements and logistical issues for being away from New York City for the next seven months. You can find my current itinerary below. In addition, the project website now has a current list of all the subjects who will be featured in the project, with more names coming soon.

Thanks again for your support of this project! More updates along the way! Remember, if you'd like more up to the minute information, (and see a photo from today's shoot) check out the Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter.

      David-I'd love to visit Atlanta, and it may end up happening, but I'm not sure at the moment.

      Michael-I'm photographing Dan Dennett in Maine, and I LOVE peanut butter cups, so I'll have to check that out while I'm up there!

      I'm curious why you're visiting Maine for three days, as I am unable to figure out who you would interview from my home state. If you're in Lewiston, Waterville or Bangor, get a peanut butter cup from the Governor's restaurant chain, it's so delicious it's an affront to God.

      Why no Atlanta GA? I know it's in the bible belt, but it's a big city, an international hub, and there are quite a few atheists here.
