Their Only Portrait

HUNDREDS? THOUSANDS? MORE THAN YOU CAN COUNT?
WHAT IF YOU HAD NONE???
During my travels through South America, I’s annoyed to see hundreds of Tourists taking photos of local people as if they’re in a Human Safari (without showing any respect to their subjects) but it was worst when I found out several of those local people didn’t even have a family portrait.
As a photographer I knew I must make a difference and to that end I started Their Only Portrait!
This project’s goal is to make family portraits of the local people I meet along the road, as I cycle thousands of miles/kilometers through “in developing countries”. Carrying a Portable Photography Studio will let me CREATE + PRINT + GIVE AWAY a printed copy of their ONE photo to those families!
I’m planning to visit a NEW country every year, starting with Argentina in December 2015 where:.
•I’ll cycle 7,000+ miles (10.500 km) along the Cordillera de los Andes (Ruta 40).
•I’ll make + print + give away portraits for those families who’d none.
•I’ll also be delivering Luci portable solar lights to the families who need them most!
Unfortunately after riding 1000+ miles at Southern Patagonia, my digital camera broke due to the harsh environment.... and as I already sold my back-up camera to fund this trip, I had to return home until I'm able to replace my broken camera :(
THANK YOU so much for taking the time to read my story & discover my Little Personal Project.
REMEMBER YOUR SUPPORT will take back on the road to put a printed portrait in a family's hands!!!
Please pledge as much or as little as you can. If not, it would mean enough to me that you even read this, viewed the website, followed or simply just enjoyed my journey :)
