About this project

Hi, I'm An Rong Xu.  

The project you are viewing is about my grandpa.  My grandfather raised me until I was 8 years old, taking me to first days of school, buying me ice cream from Mr. Frosty, and letting me get lost in Chinatown.  Four years ago, he was diagnosed with throat cancer. Since his diagnosis, I've been photographing him as a way to get to know him and become closer to him. This project has transformed me, allowing for my to grow as an artist, a person, and a grandson.  Last April, he passed away.

Recently, I learned that the work on my grandfather will be getting a solo exhibition in February 2013 at Gallery 360 in Boston.  However, at the moment, I lack the funds necessary to print, frame, hang and catalog the show.  

That is why I am asking for your support to help make this show possible.  In return, I am offering original prints from the series and my website as rewards.  

I want to be able to honor my grandpa with this show.

Thank you for your contributions and your support.

Risks and challenges

If funded, I will be able to rent darkroom space to print, chemicals, frames, and hanging materials.

I will be doing all silver gelatin prints myself.

If I don't receive enough funding, I won't be able to print the show in time for the opening in January 2013.
