The photography magic of social media

Indigenous in Chiapilla Mexico

Few hours after I started the project of trying to save my badly beaten behind from being burnt, my wife asked if there was any response. I could hear by the tone of here voice that she was not all to sure of a success in this senario. Is the goal not to high she said and the time to short. Well I said. The amount of images equal to 2 images per state of the USA or about one image per European country. That is not so much is it. But if there are no movements now will there be any at all she then asked. I told here that according to my research Tuesday would be the crucial day. it might be slow until then but it would make it or break it on Tuesday.  

As to how things would go I have been right so far and to day is the crucial day of magic. Now this can break or we kan make it happen. unfortunately its not only up to me I need your help for that to happen. Start sharing this post if nothing else. In that way you can with a click  of a mouse help and make a difference to weather this project will make me or brake me.

Stay tuned stay happy

Read this then share this please. 


What:

Do you know of any one that wants a beautiful piece of photograph then let them know about this opportunity. I need to sell 100 pieces of my work before end of the month or this is the end of the photography road for me. In order to do that I have set down the price of my images and from the moment I reach the goal of having sold 100 images I will round up the number in tenths of the images and confine them to be sold in that limit. So in an instance of me selling 22 pieces of  one of my images I will round the edition up to 30 and that will be the end edition of that particular image. 

Why:

So why am I doing this. Because I need money fast to save my beaten behind from catastrophe. If I can not reach this goal I will not be able to work on my images and my upcoming books in the nearest future. That is why I need your help chipping in by at least sharing this offer to your friends

So what:

So what you might think. Yeha so what - I loose you don't win. So now is your chance to grab a deal and get a print  for peanuts. Printed and signed by me and me only. There is no guarantee of that happening in the future and certainly not if this project fails. 

How:

Now as it would be plain foolish of me to do this with an image that will only sell in one exemplar or two I will round those up to the limit of the bestseller or minimum of 20. In the case of this not working out at all, the limit will be set by me not bother with doing any more prints ever again except for my self as I will probably go bankrupt any ways by doing this.

Wich images:

Any image in  - The way I see it - series is now up for grabs and sets the path for the future. Order yours now and let others know of this mega deal by sharing this information. This includes images from Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Belize, USA, Canada, Iceland, Norway, Hungary, Netherlands and more

All images are black and white and come in two sizes 12" x 12" and 20" x 20" and are handprinted and signed by me on matt paper. 

The images up for grabs:

What if I fail:

That is some thing I do not want to think about because I trust that you are going to help if not by investing in a piece of art your self at least you will let some one that might want to buy know about this deal and help a struggling artist. I am putting my trust in people helping out.

IPTC Caption: 
Came in contact with Sergio Castro Martines through Museo de Trajes Regionales when we where in San Cristobal de las Casas. He is a remarkable man that has been helping the indians in Chiapas for a long time. He is by training an agricultural engineer, teacher and veterinarian. However, by nature he is a true humanitarian, ethnologist and polyglot. Sergio has spent more than 45 years helping to build schools, develop water treatment systems and provide wound care for burn victims for the many indigenous cultures and Mexican people of Chiapas. I was hoping to be able to follow him for a day or two in his work but due to circumstances in the community, he was postponing all his visits for some days. We used our time instead to take a horseback ride up to Chiapilla and strolled around there for some time. I got this image of a native at the town office building. This was a shot from the hip. Lucky one as such but much to my liking.
