CHANGING PERSPECTIVES: Renewable Energy and the Shifting Human Landscape is a multi-year aerial and ground-based photography project documenting global renewable energy development. To maximize the international reach and potential for this project, I am asking for your support.
The issues surrounding energy production and its impacts are global. Renewable energy projects are being built around the world at a remarkable pace. Many of the most dynamic and compelling projects are under development internationally, not in the United States. Thus, I am determined to document key projects on multiple continents, which represent our best efforts to shift energy production away from fossil fuels.
By documenting significant changes in our contemporary energy landscape, I seek to create imagery relevant to our present-day collective conversation and an eventual historical perspective of this era on Earth. I am pursuing opportunities to share this imagery with global audiences through editorial publications, books, exhibitions, and presentations.
My creative preference for aerial photography is to shoot from helicopters and small planes at altitudes of 500 to 5000 feet (150 to 1500 meters). Aerial photography internationally is two to five times more expensive than in the United States. Add in the cost of producers, translators, assistants, drones when helicopter or airplane flights are not possible, plus complicated permitting and permission requirements. Undertaking in-depth international work is expensive.
To cover the direct costs of documenting in two or more countries each year, I am working to raise a minimum of $150K US annually. These funds will be dedicated solely to creating new work and its dissemination to the international community. To further the success of CHANGING PERSPECTIVES, I ask for your financial support. By contributing to CHANGING PERSPECTIVES through BLUE EARTH, a 501c3 non-profit organization, your individual or corporate contributions may be tax-deductible. Foundations that provide grants to 501c3 organizations may also support CHANGING PERSPECTIVES through BLUE EARTH. Thank you in advance for your help and support.
