Black,Brown, and Beige

Raised by 10 people in 23 days

My name is Tiffany Sutton and I am seeking donations for a large scale photography project. The project features my family and families I’ve found in and around St.Louis.

The project is a series of formal portraits of black families shot with 4x5 black and white film and a accompanying large format camera. Black,Brown and Beige is inspired by the Duke Ellington album with the same name. The album is told in three parts and tells the story of the history of blacks in America thru the 1920’s, ‘30’s and World War II. My photography will tell the present story of blacks in St.Louis, Missouri.

Incorporated into this work will be an all black choir singing the songs on the album; which were originally sung by Mahilia Jackson. This performance will occur on the opening night of the exhibition.

With your donations, I will purchase film, process and print selected images to be shown. Donations will also go to members of the choir. As a thank you, you’ll receive a custom made print of you and your family to cherish forever.

My total goal is small,$2000, for the project! Any amount helps and is appreciated. If you can’t donate, please share my proposal with others throughout Facebook and Instagram. And follow me on Instagram at @tiffanyjoy1955 to see the progress and outtakes of the work.

I’ve been thinking and I’ve decided to seek funding in a less demanding way. So.... if you’d like to help fund this project, please buy artwork from “Girls Eating Fruit”. For those who donate; I can’t thank you enough for believing in me and the project and you will be given a gift. Sorry for the email, Facebook and Instagram and text harassment.
