About this project
The Wild Image Project is ready to go but still needs crucial fund raising. Wend Magazine has donated 2 full pages for advertising: one for the Summer issue and one for the Holiday issue.
To raise funds, the Wild Image Project is offering advertising placements and raffle tickets for a grand prize of two (2) 26"x40" prints (retail $1,500) of your choice plus a signed copy of the coffee table book "The Wild Image Project - Argentina"
In addition to the raffle, "Backers" investing $100 and more will see their name in the "Contributors" list on a full page advertisement for the Wild Image Project in Wend Magazine. Click here for ad page layout.
About the expedition: Working in collaboration with Fundacion Vida Sylvestre, Parques National and the Consul of Argentina in New York, the expedition will collect a precious work of photography focused on the country's endemic endangered and threatened species. During those 6 months, I will explore the volcano Lanin, report about important migratory corridors and capture photos of wildlife from the Jungles of Missiones, the Ibera Marshes, the Andes and Patagonia.
The work from this expedition will be featured in the solo show "Wildlife of Argentina" to be held at the Consul of Argentina in New York from October 7th to 28th, 2010.
A new website has been created for this expedition: www.thewildimageproject.com. This site acts like a console, where viewers can follow the expedition practically in real time. Each day will be tracked through Spot. Photos will be posted through Flickr and will feed the gallery. Videos will be posted on Vimeo and will appear on the site.
