This project's funding goal was not reached on August 28, 2011.
The weather held out for me and allowed me to spend a wonderful evening with my supporters at the Walt Shamel Community Garden. I was so happy to share the collection of Block Party photos in addition to audio interviews from the people who have invited me to capture photos of them and welcome me on their stoop.
I also want to thank you all who have helped with the event at the garden. You truly made it all happen.
In the final days of my Kickstarter Block Party Book Project, I am asking everyone to reach out to your neighbors and ask them to back the project.
The time is now!
In the summer of 2010 I shot mostly in Brooklyn, Uptown and Queens. Here is one of my interviews on Sterling Place Between Nostrand and New York Ave 2010.
And that is how sweet they are on Sterling Place and you will never know if you are just driving or walking by the neighborhood.
Today I am not shooting cause I am focusing in the closing reception party in the garden. Hope to see you there.
I would like to invite you all to the closing reception Saturday August 20, 2011.
We will have BBQ, caipirinhas, block party photos slide show, artist talk, music and more.
