About this project

Over the last 15 years, I have documented the life of my grandmother, Johanne, a woman who pioneered her own path of feminism at an unacceptable time, who fought the traditional female role her entire life and one who, at the end of her life, faces her ultimate challenge, her mortality.

As her condition worsens with each season, I would like for my grandmother to see the final product of this project we have worked on together for so long. From the funds raised on Kickstarter, I would create large format prints for exhibition. The money will go towards scanning the negatives and printing and mounting exhibition quality prints. Also, I was recently selected to attend the Santa Fe Portfolio Review, an opportunity for some of the leading figures in photography to view my work. The funds from Kickstarter will help me create a portfolio for the Review.

By contributing to this project, you can receive various size prints from the series, my grandmother's famous mac-n-cheese recipe and a thank you letter from Johanne. You can pick the image you want by viewing the entire series on my website, http://ambershields.com/_white/oklahoma1a.html.

Thanks for reading about my project and for supporting my work.
