The Universal Family Portrait Project

$3,305

41

The Universal Family is a portrait series made to unite the human race through the spirit of family. The world is changing, and through diverse imagery of various families around the world you will see how different we can be but also how wonderfully similar we are in the eyes of our loved ones.

Everyone has a family in some shape or form, and I believe that support system to be one of the most important things in the world. A family can be big or small, blood related or not, same sex oriented or not and of course composed of people with similar or wildly different cultural backgrounds. I believe If you're lucky, you truly understand that love has no boundaries.



Photos will be composed in a manner unique to the family being photographed. I will be traveling and photographing families from all over the world to showcase our beautiful uniqueness as one Universal Family. The series will be composed into a book with photos & text explaining a little bit about each family and any comments they'd like to add about their own unique experience as a family.


Check out the Blog to see more photos I have already done for the project! http://theuniversalfamily.blogspot.com/


Thank you so much for your support and hope to meet with you all!

I can't wait to shoot the new family of the new millennium!!!

Risks and challenges

My project involves a lot of rigorous travel, so as much as I would love to keep people constantly updated, I fear that might be difficult at times. Though I definitely intend to make the time every now and again, and do so as often as possible.

Another fear of mine is unforeseen travel costs, so as my proposed fundraising goal is the minimum amount needed to supplement this particular trip, every extra bit will only help me get to more places.
