About

I'm raising funds to print a book of photos shot in the meadow behind my house. Over the past 4 years I made thousands of images.  The book will contain at least 50 of these,

The project began at the request of a friend who wanted images for her mother, but quickly grew as I used the process as a kind of mindful meditation practice. Each day, I tried to notice things that I had not before and I paid attention to the rhythm and flow of the seasons. I embraced the challenge of shooting and processing the images solely on my phone.

The following images are ones that are part of a show that took place at the Brink Gallery in Missoula MT and at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens. You can choose as reward prints.  In addition for a slightly higher fee I can get almost any other meadow image printed (most can be found here . Prints are made by Wojtek Wojdynski. They are inkjet printed on archival paper and look fabulous.  A show of this work (printed on canvas) will be up at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens in Chapel Hill for the duration of the Kickstarter.  Here is a look at the show as well.

Risks and challenges

The images are shot, and a printer has been found. I have set a goal of 12,000 which will cover the cost of printing, shipping the books, and paying for a designer to help me lay it out. If the project is funded it should take 4-6 months to print and ship the books. Prints will be shipped by the end of January.
