Every now and then there's a project that comes along that's just worth following. A few minutes ago Courtney Bent, Lorie Borges and the team launched their Kickstarter campaign for "The 100 Cameras Project". The opening paragraph on the Kickstarter page says it all...
"What does it feel like when your voice and ideas are truly heard? The 100 Cameras Project will place cameras in the hands of 100 individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities throughout the United States and create a series of photography exhibitions that will bring the often unheard voices and unseen vision of these new photographers to life."
The video below will fill you in and there's even more great information about the project on the Kickstarter page. It's just a click away...
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
