THANK YOU for visiting my project page!

My name is Russell K.Frederick and I am a photographer from Brooklyn. For the past decade I have been documenting an urban America that is often left out of mainstream media. Where I grew up there is love, dignity, respect, honor, style, beauty as well as challenges. I capture this on film.

I am so proud to coordinate my first major solo show in New York in the spring/summer of 2011 showcasing my work from the past ten years. With your help and contributions, I hope to be able to raise the money for my show. The funds will be used for printing, rental space, framing, invitations, marketing, installation, scanning and all of the other things that go along with launching a major solo exhibition.

My goal is to raise a minimum of $7,000 for the show, however, the more I raise the better it will be. Times are tough...any contribution small or large is immensely appreciated!

I sincerely thank you for coming to my page to take a look at my work. I want to share the beauty of the human spirit through my photographs with New York City and then the world! Your contribution is helping to make this happen.

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 when the project reaches its fund raising goal. After that time, backers will be contacted by the project coordinator to obtain any additional information that may be needed (ie. shipping address, t shirt size,etc.).
