There are so many outstanding projects in our industry, but now and then an artist comes along with a project and a series of stories I just want to share. Airing later this week is a new episode of "Why?" featuring the work of Stacy Pearsall. To date, she's photographed and shared the stories of 6500 veterans in 27 different states.
There's no reason for me to share more of her story since the short video below will take you through her background as a photographer, journalist, educator, and veteran. She's working hard to get the project to Alaska this year, and she's set up a GoFunMe page, giving us a chance to participate and help expand the story she's telling about America's veterans throughout the United States.
"The Veterans Portrait Project (VPP) aims to promote awareness of American veterans through the art of photography, videography, printed exhibits and community events."
Click on any of the images in this post to link to Stacy's GoFundMe page if you'd like to help with the project. She's telling a remarkable story, and it won't take very much from each of us to help her achieve her Alaska goal and beyond.
ClickCon was AMAZING!
It's rare that a first year conference has the power that ClickCon brought to the industry last week. Great speakers, a busy trade show and 1300 attendees loaded with a passion to learn and grow. Put the show on your radar so you know the dates for 2020 when they're announced!
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.
