RESPECTING OUR ELDERS
“Respecting My Elders’ by Ellen Wallenstein, a collection of photographic portraits featuring creative individuals of “The Greatest Generation”, is posted on UnitedStatesArtists.org, a national online community that supports artists’ projects .
She is seeking support to fund the design and maintenance of a unique website, which will exhibit this ongoing series of portraits, and a printed catalogue of the photographs made from 2009-2011.
The portraits are of people over eighty who have affected our culture, taken in their homes and studios. This work-in-progress includes portraits of photographers, artists, musicians and writers.
The project has a set deadline of February 14, 2012, to raise the money needed to get funded. All contributions are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged on the website and in the catalogue. You can read more about it here:
