What we're about
On January 20th, we had our first discussion and planning meeting on using the book Five Finger Discount by Helene Stapinski as inspiration for a photo project. It was attended by four photographers and the author Helene Stapinski. We will be meeting about every four to five weeks to discuss and present our progress. Photographers are invited to participate individually or as part of a collaboration. Please help to round up any interested people to attend. Some ideas are:
* illustrate the stories, locations, and histories conveyed in the book
* create works that evoke the feelings and moods in the book
* express similarities and parallels with your own life
* express the impact the book has had on you
One outcome from these projects is for local photographers/artists to explore our community and express our relationship to it.
