“Issue Three: The United States (2003-2013).”
When I am not working as a Sub-Zero repair mechanic I shoot street photography for fun. I have been doing it for years, in and out of American cities like New york, Washington and Chicago. I do not shoot a lot in New Jersey where I live as I get caught up in a work routine most of the time. I don’t make any profit from my street photography nor do I plan to. I look at it as a way to get more in touch with my sub-conscious as I believe photography in general can be used to tap into whats really going on behind the scenes. Well, good photography at least. A few years ago a student at School of Visual arts started a blog called http://mosslessmagazine.com/. The Idea was to interview a photographer every couple days and compile a large database of awesome photography. They succeeded at the website is constantly discovering new and awesome visual artists. The blog founder Romke Hoogwaerts next goal is to publish a compendium of sorts featuring all of our photography titled “Issue Three: The United States (2003-2013).” My work will be featured in this massive book once its kickstarter is funded.
The Kickstarter Video
I love this video, I think it speaks for itself just like the blog has over the years. I am tired of goofy artists kickstarter campaign where some young artist blabs about their ambitions to do this or that. These guys actually proofed the book and it looks awesome. It will be funded in no time. Check out the video, its long but it really gives you an idea of what they are trying to do, make a good book and give us photographers a chance for a little exposure. It’s simple and concise and it will result in something real we can look back on while drinking a cup of coffee. Can’t say that about a lot of art kickstarters.
What is Kickstarter?
1. Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.
We’re a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since our launch in 2009, 5.6 million people have pledged $963 million, funding55,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now.
Basically Kickstarter is a way for creatives to easily accept donations for their projects through an online payment like an Amazon account. The creator receives no money for the project if his monetary goal is not met. It is free to sign up and start a project but if the goal is funded, Kickstarter takes five percent of the earnings. Not a bad business!
Why am I writing about this on a Sub-Zero Repair Website?
Because! If you need Sub-Zero repair within the next couple weeks chances are you will run into someone from our company. Provide proof that you donated to this kickstarter by showing one of our technicians an email conformation for any amount and receive a fifty dollar discount from our services, no questions asked.
