Dance Photographer is Robbed~~Help Us

Christine Fu is an extraordinary flamenco photographer who in the past years has become sought after and cherished by the California flamenco and dance community for her evocative and revolutionary photography of artists from Spain and the U.S. at festivals and concerts. On her way home after photographing the opening night of the Bay Area Flamenco Festival, she was mugged and robbed by two men of all of her photographic equipment. In the process of trying to protect her equipment, she was bruised and hurt. Apart from the traumatic event, she is unable to work as a photographer due to this loss. Many of us in the community want to help her get back to her work - she is an irreplaceable asset to the artists, companies, students and flamenco community in which she works. We want to raise the $5,000 in camera equipment that was stolen from her, and show her that she is beloved and needed and that our communities cannot wait the year or so she would need on her own to raise the money.

Christine Fu has often generously both donated her time and efforts, or worked on our behalf at greatly reduced cost - now we would like to show her that we care and that we can come together to put her back to doing what she loves - being the true artist that she is. Dance photography is a highly specialized field and it is a rare talent and artist that can bring the form to life...Christine is one of those talents and a generous spirit and we hope you will help! All proceeds minus a 5% fee go directly to Christine upon the end of this fundraising campaign, so your pledge is held until the goal is reached.


Thank you!
