hey y’all, this is a thing that is happening! please help me spread the word and finish this project!
Special Edition Book! & CONTEST FOR AWESOME THINGS!
The Outliers: West Coast (Special Edition Book) is now on sale for a range between $10 and $50.
This special edition book of the west coast portion of the trip is being offered to help raise funds to finish the project. The project is expected to take an additional 3 to 4 months of major travel to complete by March 2012 for an exhibition in Baltimore, Maryland that will be open to the public and free of charge.
The funds that this zine raises go towards processing fees, printing fees, and most importantly, travel costs associated with reaching as many people as possible, like car rentals to reach those who are out of city centers. Plus if you get one you will hve my eternal love and adoration, y’all. And also an awesome book.
For those of you who would like a book but cannot afford to pay for one, I’ll be giving away A FREE COPY, + Other Outliers project related goodies to 3 wonderful people who re-blog this and are following The Outliers Project Blog. Winners will be chosen at random on September 18th, at 11:59pm EST. Goodluck!
support elle’s work! they are an amazing person and incredible photographer! when i ate too many pot brownies at ida, i spent all of dinner telling everyone in earshot that elle had made the croutons, and they were the best croutons i’d ever eaten. a fact i had completely forgotten about until they reminded me last night. thanks for that, elle.
Description of the Outliers: "The Outliers is a photographic project focusing on the genderqueer identity in America. People who identify as genderqueer identify as neither male or female, both male and female, transgender men, transgender women, intersex, two spirit, and other identifications as individual as the person who claims them. The project is currently in progress, and I am currently traveling the United States with a medium format camera, photographing as many people as I am able to. My hope is to be able to include an incredible amount of people of all sorts of identifications in the final body of work."
sounds incredible! i tried to buy it/donate but it doesn’t ship to canada unfortunately. either way - signal boost this great work!
