TIH Homeless Models Exhibition

£436 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 19 months

I'm Tatjana Hoffmann, 24 from Germany and the Founder of TIH Models in London.
TIH aims to offer employment to young people in London. It's a great start for them to get back on track, as modelling has quite flexible working hours and the shoots+ makeovers support self-confidence and highly needed community. Read more on www.tihmodels.com
I myself am a simple photographer (portfolio: https://www.lensculture.com/tatjana-irina) I was a student of the famous german photographer Jan C. Schlegel ( http://www.jan-schlegel.com/)

I mention that, because I want to give a clear vision of myself and my fully good intentions with the exhibition and the project. I worked with non-profit organisations, Like Pick-a-Pocket before and did volunteer work over several years.

I don't have the backup to finance the business all by myself. Before taking a big loan out, I wanted to share the project with you . The profil the exhibition will make by selling the pictures will 100% go back into TIH Models. The agency itself is a Non-Profit / Social Enterprise.
Some of the models images already were presented on Paris Fashion Week this year.  

The money will be used for: 
- Model pay [half day, £10/h] --> 9 Models £450
- Camera £650]
- Homeless Model transport to shoot £70
- Exhibition Space + Frames £1000
- Advertisement Flyers/ FbAds £150
- Darkroom chemistry + paper £400

 Flight to Germany to develop the images at my Teachers Darkroom [cheaper--> £50-£60 + darkroom bills £100]
renting a darkroom in London to develop
[more expensive/ £40 session x9 or more -->£360]

It all comes together to £4720
It would be so lovely if you could help me raising £2000-
£4000 by contributing or sharing the campaign on Facebook or with friends!

The money will be needed latest by the end of august, as I need to start working on the images. As soon as winter hits, the models are in a much more diffictult position, looking for shelter etc, so I want the exhibition to be up and running as soon as possible. Best before November.

I am a analog fine art photographer, which means I will need 2 full months to get everything done!

Please believe in this with me and be blown away by how lifes will get transformed. It already is such a beautiful story, it's just a question about funding it an giving it the start-up push that's needed!
The models and I would be so grateful!

Thank You!
